“Among the most provocative and compelling feminist political visions since The Second Sex. These essays represent the radical extension of de Beauvoir’s theory, its unexpected lesbian future. Wittig’s theoretical insights are both precise and far-reaching, and her theoretical style is bold, incisive, even shattering.”
—Judith Butler, Johns Hopkins University

“Wittig most brilliantly analyzes certain transformations in the textures and structures of literary language. The wonderful image of the role of literature as a Trojan horse is a gem of clarity and wit.”
—Germaine Brée

“At last it will be possible to have easy access to these provocative and important essays.”
—Elaine Marks, University of Wisconsin, editor of New French Feminisms
