Summary
  • "Anna Wilson's Persuasive Fictions: Feminist Narrative and Critical Myth offers a new picture of how feminist texts have historically succeeded or failed to change people's lives. Using a range of narrative genres - novels and autobiographies, feature and documentary films, political pamphlets and feminist critical narratives - Wilson challenges the critical myth that feminist texts are naturally effective instruments for raising consciousness or promoting social change
  • From Mary Wollstonecraft's novels to Thelma and Louise or the prose and films of Audre Lorde, her book documents how the first reception of a feminist work - whether in the 1790s or the 1990s - generates a truly unpredictable history of personal and political responses among readers, including the later critical interpretations that try to decide whether a text successfully "resists" the dominant values and powers of its culture."--Jacket
