Synopsis: This collection of essays deals with Helene Cixous's works published mainly after 1990. The first chapters of the volume establish the theoretical motivations for examining Cixous's opus through the mythical symbols and alchemical figures of a new Eurydice and of the feminine versions of Hermes and Orpheus. These figures, which represent major shifts in symbolical thinking, inspire the process of transformation through literature. Other chapters examine key ideas, such as Cixous's fidelity to writing and to the world of literature, or focus on particular texts by the writer, such as L'OR and Osnabruck, La Ville parjure ou le reveil des Erinyes; the last text examined being L'Amour du loup et autres remords. The concluding pages of the volume briefly address Cixous's most recent works, stressing the vitality and the creative power of her writings.
