Explores the work of the contemporary French author Jeanne Hyvrard, from her early novels of the 1970s to the texts of 1990s and beyond. Moving critical accounts of Hyvrard beyond a focus upon ecriture feminine, this work identifies the patterns through which her writing repeats and transforms creation mythology, her own oeuvre, and her own life.

Les articles inédits réunis dans le présent volume ont au moins deux objectifs majeurs qui se complètent et se croisent à la fois. Le premier, de par la diversité des thèmes abordés, permet de donner des pistes supplémentaires afin d'éclairer l'oeuvre hyvrardienne. Le second offre, autant que faire se peut, une ébauche sinon un cheminement de la pensée hyvrardienne puisque les contributions de ce recueil portent tant sur des livres anciens que récents de Jeanne Hyvrard. L'ouvrage est complété par une bibliographie des écrits et critiques de et sur l'oeuvre de Jeanne Hyvrard.

"This critical introduction for the first time brings the work of the French theorist Jeanne Hyvrard to the English-speaking world. Hyvrard, by training a political economist, combines 'chaos theory', personal history, and political analysis to address the condition and future of the post-colonial world. Original, incisive and committed to new ways of thinking, Hyvrard's work confronts the profound questions of our time: language; the body; women's resistance to physical and psychological oppression; colonialism; ecology and technology; madness and illness; birth and death; and mother-daughter relations." "Much of Hyvrard's writing (like that of other French feminist writers) is semi fictional. Like Helene Cixous, Hyvrard has been described as a proponent of 'l'ecriture feminine', but, as Jennifer Waelti-Walters shows by setting Hyvrard's work in a range of contexts, Hyvrard makes her own distinctive contribution to western intellectual thought by working out from the female body to global politics, economics and environmental issues."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Journey to the glittering seventeenth-century court, and witness the rise and fall of young, charming Robert Merivel... When a twist of fate delivers an ambitious young medical student to the court of King Charles II, he is suddenly thrust into a vibrant world of luxury and opulence.

But by falling in love with her, Merivel transgresses the one rule that will cast him out from his new-found paradise... 'For a vivid – and funny – fictional re-creation of the era, Tremain’s Restoration is hard to beat.' The Times Rose Tremain has sold over one million copies of her books.

Agnes Ridley has a cruel tongue and a heart of stone, and when she discovers housemaid Lizzie Burton has fallen pregnant, she turns her out with only the clothes on her back. If it weren't for loyal Debbie, who follows her friend into exile, Lizzie would be friendless as well as destitute. The girls are blessed when they meet big-hearted Sadie Trent, who takes them in and cherishes them like her own. But even Sadie cannot protect the girls from the vicious malice of Abe Turley, who is determined to take his pleasure - and then his revenge; and from sinister Fleur Masson, who hides an evil trade behind the respectable facade of a fashion house. After such tribulations, can there ever be true happiness for a child of sin?
