-"Times Literary Supplement, 1/91
." . . the clarity of Grosz's exegetical skill is quite remarkable."
-"Afterimage, October 1990
"This book . . . provides an excellent overview of the contributions of psychoanalysis to feminist questions concerning gendered subjectivity, sexuality and sociopsychical processes of sexual representation. . . . it should prove helpful to feminists who are interested in pushing at the boundaries of psychoanalytic theory to examine its usefulness for dealing with these issues. The readings offered cannot replace our own interpretations of any of the original texts; rather, they instill us with the confidence to do delve in."
