Summary A rereading of the American feminist criticism of the past two decades and the literary canon which it has constructed as its foundation. It reads a group of works that have become feminist classics - "Jane Eyre", "The Yellow Wallpaper", "Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl", "Their Eyes Are Watching God" and "The Colour Purple"--Focusing on how each work represents talk and how feminist criticism has talked about these representations, developing the paradigm of "erotics of talk"--the search for the ideal listener.
Contents Introduction --- I. The politics of recuperation. Reading feminist readings -- Recuperating agents --- II. The erotics of talk. Grl talk -- The oldest human longing -- Somebody I can talk to -- Conclusion: auditions.
