Unknown - 1997
Rate this:
"Poet Phyllis Webb initiated new ways of seeing into the cultural "dark" of Western thought. By blurring the axis between "light" and "dark, " she redefined women's subjectivity and sexuality, which are traditionally assigned "dark" negative values, in positive terms." "Seeing in the Dark includes perceptive discussions on a number of Webb's collections, specifically Naked Poems, Wilson's Bowl, Water and Light and Hanging Fire. Butling shows how Webb uses strategies of subversion, reversal and re-vision of prevailing traditions and tropes to facilitate "seeing in the dark." She also provides a fascinating analysis of Webb criticism - tracing it over the past thirty years and revealing a shift in critical paradigms. A chapter on biography includes intriguing archival material."--Jacket.
