Description

The surprising and controversial thesis of Feminist Fabulation is unflinching: the postmodern canon has systematically excluded a wide range of important women's writing by dismissing it as genre fiction. Marleen Barr issues an urgent call for a corrective, for the recognition of a new meta- or supergenre of contemporary writing--feminist fabulation--which includes both acclaimed mainstream works and works which today's critics consistently ignore.show more

Review quote

"Barr has been a pioneering figure in the study of women's science fiction and speculative fiction. Now she has gone even further and mapped a new genre, 'feminist fabulation.' At once informative and visionary, her book offers a different way of reading contemporary imaginings." -- Catherine R. Stimpsonshow more
