One of the most innovative examples of the use of fantastic forms in recent feminist fiction can be found in the work of Irmtraud Morgner. Little-known outside German-speaking countries, her unique blend of fantastic realism testifies both to the subversive nature of a literature of fantasy and the transgressive power of a feminist writing practice. This book looks at the way Morgner uses fantasy both as a feminist critique of the history of patriarchy and as a test of the viability of feminist alternatives.

Alison Lewis is a Lecturer in German, at the School of Humanities, Queensland University of Technology.
"By evoking an impressive array of literary-historical, semiotic, social, feminisst, and Marxist perspectives, Lewis has produced an innovative and insightful reading of Morgner's work. The wealth of material displayed here will surely prove invaluable for future Morgner scholarship. ...this book is not only highly readable but also makes Morgner's work mre accessible to an English-speaking audience." --The German Quarterly
