Inhaltsangabe: What constitutes a narrative as "lesbian"? Hoogland provides original readings of such films as Basic Instinct and Bitter Moon, and novels such as The Bell Jar and Friends and Relations in order to trace the way lesbian identities are negotiated in Western culture.
From the Back Cover: This book forms an introduction to the rapidly growing field of lesbian studies. Steering a middle course between 'high theory' and detailed textual analysis, it provides both those new to the field and more experienced readers in lesbian/gay and feminist scholarship with original insights into the contradictory meanings of lesbian sexuality in Western culture.
Exploring different cultural forms, including twentieth-century fiction and Hollywood cinema, Hoogland addresses topical theoretical questions concerning the shifting significance of lesbian sexuality as they arise from careful textual analyses. Among the examples discussed are Alice Walker's The Color Purple, Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar, and the Hollywood thriller Basic Instinct. Guiding concerns are the interrelations between knowledge and desire, between sexuality and gender, and the violent operation of heterosexual ideologies. Adopting a psychoanalytical perspective, Hoogland concludes by critically interrogating feminism's ambivalent stakes in female same-sex desire.
Lesbian Configurations is both a valuable introduction to an expanding field and an original contribution to current debates.
