symploke own form of therapy. Kuhn states, "In Wolf's view, `women's writing' comes into being when women give voice to the historically grounded different reality they experience" (164). Wolf rejects the notion of "feminism," seeing it as a product of Western capitalism and instead situates her work to rejuvenate Marxist and socialist ideals. Writing in the context of Eastern Bloc socialism, Wolf's aesthetics look towards emancipation, not equality, and she hopes to show the importance of imbuing what she calls objective reality with this authorial subjective experience in an effort to preserve what is human (166). For any student or scholar who is not necessarily well-versed in the breadth and depth of feminist literary theory, this collection of essays offers a clear and digestible layout of the field's most current scholars and shows the range within the field of feminist theory. Examination of multiple genres (science-fiction, fantasy, poetry, theatre), conceptual themes and ideologies (revolution, liberalism, post-colonialism, phenomenology) and across several centuries creates a literary-theoretical history of the significant relationship between feminist literature and feminist theory and shows how the momentum of this relationship needs to continue even now.
