Kristeva, Julia

Powers of horror : an essay on abjection - New York : Columbia University Press, 1982 - x, 219 p. ; 23 cm - European perspectives .

Includes bibliographical references.
Translated from the French

Kristeva is one of the leading voices in contemporary French criticism, on a par with such names as Genette, Foucault, Greimas and others ... [Powers of Horror is] an excellent introduction to an aspect of contemporary French literature which has been allowed to become somewhat neglected in the current emphasis on para-philosophical modes of discourse. The sections on Céline, for example, are indispensable reading for those interested in this writer and place him within a context that is both illuminating and of general interest.
