Sample text

As male critics become more fascinated with feminist criticism, be it for reasons of intellectual curiosity or the more mundane exigency of keeping up with the latest theory, the feminine and the feminist have become entwined in interesting ways. The feminine beckons while the feminist resists. Consider, for instance, the strange situation in which Ruthven finds himself. At the same time that he realizes the need to recognize feminist literary criticism, and indeed writes a book on it, he also writes that: Feminist terrorism is a mirror image of machismo.

1991:14) Problematic selves: the irony of the feminine 39 Meaghan Morris’ (1988a) brilliant strategy of listing pages upon pages of feminist postmodernist work obviates the need to cite all the feminists who have been or continue to be in the midst of postmodernism. My interest here, however, concerns not so much the absence of feminists in postmodernist accounts but the ways in which some postmodernist literary critics have appropriated feminism. More specifically, what I will examine is the way in which feminism gets turned into the feminine at the expense of the positivity of feminist theorizations of experience.
