Sporatic pencilled underlining in portions of text. Datestamp on front free endpaper.

All of the authors have experienced cross-culturalism directly and are conscious that positions of 'double vision', which allow the 'I' to participate positively in two or more cultures, are privilidges that only a few can celebrate. Most women find themselves "caught between cultures". They become involved in a day-to-day struggle, in an attempt to negotiate identities which can affirm the self and, at the same time, strengthen the ties which unties the self with others. ... ; Cross-Cultures Series; Vol. 52; 152 pages

Dust jacket shows light shelfwear. ; FROM DUST JACKET: This provocative study explores the function of the unconscious in reading and creative processes. The book asks if reading can change the reader, and more specifically, if women, through reading can change the unconscious fantasy structures that govern desire. Using models of the unconscious developed by Freud, Lacan, Kristeva, Cixous, Noy, and Chodorow, Wyatt explores the complex interactions between a text and a reader's unconscious. She theorizes specific processes whereby young readers can assimilate the dynamic images of female autonomy in Heidi, The Wizard of Oz, and Little Women. ; 284 pages
