Formatted abstract
Marta Caminero-Santangelo's The Madwoman Can't Speak: Or Why Insanity Is Not Subversive is a critique of contemporary feminist criticism of insanity in literature, illustrated by readings of madness as represented in post-war American women's fiction and semi-autobiographical prose writing. ...Yet The Madwoman is a complex, theoretically sophisticated work, a central element in the paradigm shift that occurred in feminist criticism in the 1980s and which inspired much powerful work that did not simply repeat it, and that advocated agency over victimhood. It goes without saying that Caminero-Santangelo is herself a beneficiary of that legacy.
