Summary
  • "In Modes of Seduction: Sexual Power in Balzac and Sand, Deborah Houk Schocket studies representations of seduction by two nineteenth-century writers whose works paint inersecting pictures of French society during the Restoration and July Monarchy, highlighting both continuities and discontinuities between Ancien Regime and postrevolutionary literature and society."
  • "Schocket examines both the psychological and social aspects of the relation of domination, and the literary texts comprising this study provide a context for exploring private sexual politics during a time of public social upheaval. The realm of seduction - where forces of desire, power, and sex converge - provides a focal point for Schocket's analysis of gender stereotypes and their subversion, the ties between the sexual drive and the desire for self-affirmation and power over another, and the factors such as class and sex that shape one's identity and ability to influence others
  • Through its examination of Balzac's and Sand's representations of seduction from the perspectives of feminism, psycho-analysis, and cultural studies, this book sheds lights on erotic relations and the ways in which they are embedded in wider issues of subjectivity and political and social structures."--Jacket
