Scheming Women charts a trajectory of American female poetic speakers from within a heterosexual lyric framework to bisexual and lesbian subjects outside that pervasive frame. In close readings of Dickinson, Moore, H.D., and Rich, the author makes a new argument about the division that permeates their poetic speaking subjects. Postulating a revolutionary female subject, she extends Julia Kristeva's theory of poetic language through an intertextual approach, and shows that these relatively advantaged female poets destructure the very poetic power they are able to assert. Hogue concludes that in not reproducing positions of dominance and privilege indicative of larger cultural trends, these key poets exemplify important alternatives to class, race, and gender hierarchies--persuasively demonstrating the promise of what she terms an ethical feminist poetic practice.

Review:

"Few critics today are both well versed in contemporary theoretical debates and skilled readers of poetry. Hogue manages both categories of analysis with conviction and grace. This book will join a very small number of others in filling a significant gap in feminist criticism, namely that of theoretically informed and knowledgeable analysis of the poems and poetic projects of major American women poets. This is excellent and important work." --Cristanne Miller, Pomona College

"Cynthia Hogue's Scheming Women lays supple hands on a body of theory the death announcement of which she demonstrates to have been premature. Hogue revivifies psychoanalytic theory in her deft revoicing of lyric poetry and its imbrication in cultural constructions of subjectivity and its border territories."--Lynda Zwinger, University of Arizona
