Simone de Beauvoir: A Critical Reader by Elizabeth Fallaize



Book Condition: Paperback book. Cover is in great shape. Pages are crisp & clean with no writing, underlining or highlighting. Very good copy of this book. Always HONEST and UPFRONT descriptions. Elizabeth Fallaize is a lecturer at St. John's College, Oxford, and has written extensively on Simone de Beauvoir.

However, Elizabeth Fallaize's book, Simone de Beauvoir: A Critical Reader (1998), occupies a special niche. Many of its essays are excerpts from studies done of Beauvoir's work before this latest renaissance. Some of these studies are not in print in the United States. Some are perhaps unfamiliar to present-day readers or those from different disciplines. In her introduction, Fallaize points out how this essay served as a foundation for Butler's own subsequent work on a performative theory of gender. Butler argues that Beauvoir's claim that one is not born but becomes a woman implies that gender is socially constructed and not natural, as people have insisted for centuries.

In a compelling introduction Elizabeth Fallaize, examines how de Beauvoir's work has been read over time, contextualizes those readings within the evolution of feminism, and looks at her changing role within contemporary culture and thought. The acclaimed contributors to this collection are: Judith Okely, Judith Butler, Sonia Kruks Beauvoir, Toril Moi, Eva Lundgren-Gothlin, Francis Jeanson, Alex Hughes, Elaine Marks, Hazel Barnes, Jane Heath, Anne Ophir and Elizabeth Fallaize. Sparklingly relevant to today's concerns.

Simone de Beauvoir book. In a compelling introduction Elizabeth Fallaize, examines how de Beauvoir's work has been read over time, contextualizes those readings within the evolution of feminism, and looks at her changing role within contemporary culture and thought.

Her frequently autobiographical works built up both a practical yet rigorous philosophy and a portrait of 40 years of the French intellectual scene: the major theme was individual choice and responsibility. As well as The Second Sex, which defined our century's second wave of feminism, her books include classic existentialism (She Came To Stay), experimentalism (The Blood of Others), an indictment of ageism (The Coming of Age), a study of the purpose of the intellectual elite (The Mandarins) and a record of Sartre's final days (Adieux: A Farewell to Sartre).
