Post-feminist Impasses in Popular Heroine Television: The Persephone Complex

Couverture
Springer, 28 juil. 2015 - 217 pages
Alison Horbury investigates the reprisal of the myth of Persephone - a mother-daughter plot of separation and initiation - in post-feminist television cultures where, she argues, it functions as a symptom expressing a complex around the question of sexual difference - what Lacan calls 'sexuation', where this question has been otherwise foreclosed.
