Book Description

In this major book, Griselda Pollock engages boldly in the culture wars over `what is the canon?` and `what difference can feminism make?` Do we simply reject the all-male line-up and satisfy our need for ideal egos with an all women litany of artistic heroines? Or is the question a chance to resist the phallocentric binary and allow the ambiguities and complexities of desire - subjectivity and sexuality - to shape the readings of art that constantly displace the present gender demarcations?

Reviews

'The flow of the book is wondrous, as Pollock buils each new idea onto the next, rounded out with rigorous research.' - Elizabeth Millard, ForeWardo

'If you like psychoanalytic feminism accompanied by committed, sensitive writing, then you will enjoy this read.' - Professor Gen Doy, The Art Book
