Feminist Poetics and Aesthetic Theory book
Feminist poetics has meant, ﬁ rst, locating gender on the map of traditional literary concerns. How is gender represented? What are the places and possibilities of women authors and readers? But this introduction of gender also implies an altered aesthetics. The inclusion of gender propels diff erent parameters for understanding textuality as such: what constitutes a literary artwork and analytic engagements with it. Recognizing gender as a dimension that must be considered in textual encounter, as fundamental to textual constitution and experience, has aesthetic consequences.
