The original title of the book: The Pink Guitar: Writing as Feminist Practice

"The Pink Guitar" looks at the depiction of women and the uses to which culture has put the female figure; at the same time it asks how a woman artist can make a place for herself among these gender-intensive representations. Starting with the work of William Carlos Williams and Marcel Duchamp, DuPlessis turns to a number of modernist and contemporary women writers (notably Virginia Woolf, as well as Susan Howe and Beverly Dahlen) to explore the possibilities of finding a language, and a set of cultural stances, which would question the deepest-held assumptions about gender. The whole tradition of the writing of poetry and fiction, DuPlessis argues, has colonized female figures, yet women writers have a considerable force; the women writer is a power in her own work, but an artefact in the traditions of meaning on which she draws. "The Pink Guitar" includes the essay "For the Etruscans" along with other work on the gendering of writing practices.

With the dazzling, sometimes breathtaking The Pink Guitar, Rachel Blau DuPlessis has produced one of the boldest, most enlightening, innovative, challenging, and knowledgeable works of feminist theory to grace the last couple of decades. - Martha Nell Smith, Tulsa Studies in Women's Literature ""The supreme quality of The Pink Guitar is how insightfully and thoroughly DuPlessis understands the ways that gender relations are embedded within signifying practices - and how a feminist writing practice must disrupt these practices on multiple levels.... The Pink Guitar establishes a powerful feminist writing practice not because of DuPlessis's refusal of authority, transcendence, and singularity, but because of the ways she redeploys these."" - Jeanne Heuving, Contemporary Literature ""This is one of the most pleasurable works of criticism I have read in years. These essays fuse disparate voices, colloquial, theoretical, autobiographical. They intercut DuPlessis's own words with those of other writers and poets. They draw together aspects of being usually sundered in criticism, without imposing systems or closure."" - Helen Carr, New Formations ""Critics on both sides of the Atlantic have, for years, imagined a feminine language. Here DuPlessis comes very close to inventing one.... She [creates] not only a style of writing but also a practice of reading that is uniquely her own."" - Cecilia Farr, American Literature --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
