In this breathtakingly rapid novel first published inWittig animates a lesbian society that invites all women to join their fight, their circle, and their community.

A path-breaking novel about creating and sustaining freedom, the book derives much of its energy from its vaunting of the female body as a resource for literary invention.

Wittig is a dazzling writer. Her words are lucid and gleaming like moonlight. An extraordinary leap of the imagination into the politics of oppression and revolt.

Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. Monique Wittig’s writing is fabulous. Les Guerilleres in my opinion is outdated and boring and probably never was much more than a radical feminist fantasy albeit composed when it really did take more than a little courage to crank out such a thing. Might make a good graphic novel but as a stand alone piece? You could probably do better wandering into a feminist, anarchist or lesbian run bookstore and having a conversation.

It’s probably historically noteworthy as literature because it is certainly well and clearly written and a slap to smug Euro-faces. Published originally init was groundbreaking in its exquisite, poetic-stream-of-consciousness use of language these days oft called “experimental”its contribution to postmodern theory, feminist thought, utopian literature And so yummy to read.

Her vision is of a female amazonian-like revolution, a world in which the patriarchal strictures of language are dismantled to create something new entirely. It’s a landmark for its contribution, but also as an extraordinary piece of literature in itself. Prose so shining you want to lick it off the page.

: Les Guerilleres (): Monique Wittig, David Le Vay: Books

Through a series of dazzling prose guerilletes, Wittig tells the tale of a tribe of women warriors overthrowing patriarchy, and she challenges gender constructs through her language. It’s a powerful and inspirational book about sex warfare, rather like “The Handmaid’s Tale” or some songs by Tori Amos.

A definite radical feminist classic worth reading and re-reading. Highly motivational and inspiring. It forces you to create worlds inside your head.
