Synopsis: Although Austrian writer Ingeborg Bachmann (1926–1973) is widely regarded as one of the most important twentieth-century authors writing in German, her novels and stories have sometimes been viewed narrowly as portraits of women as victims. In this innovative study, Sara Lennox provides a much broader perspective on Bachmann's work, at the same time undertaking an experiment in feminist methodology.Lennox examines Bachmann's poetry and prose in historical context, arguing that the varied feminist interpretations of her writings are the result of shifts in theoretical emphases over a period of more than three decades. Lennox then places her own essays on Bachmann in similar perspective, showing how each piece reflects the historical moment in which it was written. Making use of recent interdisciplinary approaches―Foucauldian theories of sexuality, post-colonial theory, materialist feminism―she explores the extent to which each of her earlier readings was shaped by the methods employed, the questions asked, and the political issues that seemed most germane at the time. Out of this analysis comes a new understanding of the significance of Bachmann's work and new insight into the theory and practice of feminist criticism.

From the Back Cover: "A very ambitious and original, indeed daring, experiment with impressively successful results. . . . The author set herself the triple challenge of historicizing readings of Bachmann, of reading Bachmann historically, and reading her own readings of Bachmann historically as well. The result is not just a book about Bachmann, but a persuasive demonstration of the workings of ‘positionality’ in determining how readings change across time."--Patricia Herminghouse, editor of "German Feminist Writings"

"Lennox’s meticulously written and researched study of feminist readings of the Austrian writer Ingeborg Bachmann provides us with a genealogy of feminist literary criticism in the last four decades. . . . It will be the definitive book on Bachmann in the English language, and also a book that will stir up debate in broader feminist and non-feminist circles."--Karen Remmler, editor of "Contemporary Jewish Writing in Germany: An Anthology"

"An outstanding piece of scholarship by a first-rate feminist scholar. . . . This book will be indispensable for anyone concerned with feminist theory, cultural studies, and literary criticism."--Gisela Brinker-Gabler, editor of "Writing New Identities: Gender, Nation, and Immigration in Contemporary Europe"
