Jeanette Winterson: interrogating masculinity with violence.

Makinen, Merja (2011) Jeanette Winterson: interrogating masculinity with violence. In: Jeanette Winterson: a critical exploration, 2nd-3rd July, 2011, University of Leeds.



Jeanette Winterson is known for the way she questions gender categories and confounds expectations of the feminine, from Villanelle’s active swashbuckling to the Dog Woman’s casual violence, from the unknown narrator of Written on the Body who rejects gendered identity to the fluid interplay of the narrator of The PowerBook shuffling between masculine and feminine via the engorged tulip, Winterson is someone we look to for texts that can unpack gender stereotypes. Her self-reflexive post modern texts deconstruct the divisions between masculinity and femininity.
