Simone De Beauvoir: Paperback: Reaktion Books: 9781861894342: 01 Jun 2009: A concise, critical appraisal of the life and works of Simone de Beauvoir (1908-86), the quintessential feminist intellectual, best known for her pioneering work "Le Deuxieme Sexe" (1949). Ursula Tidd draws on the latest scholarship on Beauvoir, as well as the extant volumes of her diaries and correspondence. Following its publication in 1949, The Second Sex quickly became one of the fundamental works of feminist thought. In it, Simone de Beauvoir (1908 86) offered up a statement that has informed nearly all feminist and gender scholarship that has followed, One is not born, but rather becomes, a woman. And it is the woman Beauvoir became who continues to fascinate, fostering a legend of coffee-drinking Parisian intellectuals debating existentialism in smoky cafes along the Left Bank. Beauvoir lived through some of the most dramatic and significant events of the twentieth century, and a time of enormous change for women across the world. Her personal and intellectual companions were one and the same and as a result, her intimate relationships with Jean-Paul Sartre and Nelson Algren provide a captivating context to the development of her ideas. In this concise and up-to-date critical appraisal of both the life and words of Beauvoir, Ursula Tidd illuminates the many facets of the feminist icon s complex personality, including her relentless autobiographical drive, which led her to envision her life as a continuously unfolding narrative, her active involvement in twentieth-century political struggles, and how Beauvoir the woman has over the decades become Beauvoir the myth. 2008 marked the centenary of Beauvoir s birth, yet her ideas continue to reverberate throughout contemporary scholarship. This critical biography will benefit any reader seeking insight into one of the most prominent and intriguing intellectuals of the twentieth century.

[EAN: 9781861894342], Neubuch, [PU: Reaktion Books, United Kingdom], Literary Criticism|Feminist, Literary Criticism|Women Authors, Biography & Autobiography|Literary, Social Science|Feminism & Feminist Theory, Language: English . Brand New Book. This new biography of Simone de Beauvoir (1908-86) is a concise, up-to-date, critical appraisal of the life and works of the quintessential feminist intellectual, best known for her pioneering work Le Deuxieme Sexe (1949). Drawing on the most recent scholarship on Beauvoir s work, and newly-published and extant volumes of her diaries and correspondence, Ursula Tidd allows the reader unrivalled access to the voice of this pivotal modern figure. Beauvoir lived and worked through some of the most dramatic and harrowing events of the twentieth century, a time of huge change for women across the world, and her life was marked by many opposed tensions: living and writing, the Self and the Other, the individual and the collective, and the person and the myth.In this volume Ursula Tidd illuminates these and many other facets of a complex personality: her relentless autobiographical drive, living life as a continuously unfolding narrative; her personal and intellectual relationships, which were essentially lived as a series of dialogues with a variety of interlocutors, including Jean-Paul Sartre; her active involvement in political struggles; and how Beauvoir the woman become Beauvoir the myth. Simone de Beauvoir will benefit undergraduates and the educated reader interested in a short critical appraisal of Beauvoir s life and works. The book will find a wide audience due to the current high level of interest in Beauvoir s work in Europe, North America and Asia, fuelled by the centenary, in 2008, of her birth.

Simone de Beauvoir's groundbreaking work has transformed the way we think about gender and identity. Without her 1949 text "The Second Sex," gender theory as we know it today would be unthinkable. A leading figure in French existentialism, Beauvoir's concepts of "becoming woman" and of woman as "Other" are among the most influential ideas in feminist enquiry and debate. This book guides the reader through the main areas of Simone de Beauvoir's thought, including: *existentialism and ethics *gender studies and feminism *literature and autobiography *sexuality, the body and ageing Drawing upon Beauvoir's literary and theoretical texts, this is the essential guidebook for those approaching the work of this key thinker for the first time.
