Embodied Voices: Representing Female Vocality in Western Culture

封面
Leslie C. Dunn, Nancy A. Jones
Cambridge University Press, 1994 - 254 頁
Embodied Voices explores cultural manifestations of feminine vocality in the light of current theories of subjectivity, the body, and sexual difference. The voice has been endlessly fascinating to artists and critics, yet it i s the voices of women that have inspired the greatest fascination, because the female voice signifies sexual and cultural power. The fourteen essays in this book examine a wide spectrum of discourses, including myth, literature, music, film, psychoanalysis and critical theory.
