  • Product Description

There are many analyses and interpretations of feminist writings. Many of them centre on the contextual or intertextual levels of the texts. But what if the examination focuses on the level of metaphors – both old and new – employed in those texts? Basing on Lakoff & Johnson’s theory of metaphors, the close examination of feminist discourse reveals a number of coherent groups of metaphors permeating works of the second wave feminists. Some of them attack male-domination and criticise phallocentrism, others emphasise the potential forces which are lying dormant in women. There are also metaphors which liken the female gender to mysterious continents. What structures do these metaphors reflect? Do they perpetuate existing conceptualisations or propose alternative categories? Are these metaphors coherent? What are the consequences of incongruities among them?
