By Linda Garber

"Queer theory," asserts Linda Garber, "alternately buries and vilifies lesbian feminism, lacking its precious insights and ignoring its wealthy contributions." Rejecting the either/or selection among lesbianism and queer conception, she favors an inclusive strategy that defies present factionalism. In an eloquent problem to the privileging of queer concept within the academy, Garber demands reputation of the ancient -- and intellectually major -- position of lesbian poets as theorists of lesbian id and activism. The connections, Garber indicates, are such a lot sincerely noticeable whilst taking a look at the pivotal paintings of working-class lesbians/lesbians of colour whose articulations of a number of, simultaneous identification positions and activist politics either belong to lesbian feminism and presage queer idea. identification Poetics incorporates a severe review of modern historic writing concerning the women's and lesbian-feminist pursuits of the Seventies; discussions of the works of Judy Grahn, Pat Parker, Audre Lorde, Adrienne wealthy, and Gloria Anzald?a; and, eventually, a bankruptcy at the upward push and hegemony of queer idea inside lesbigay reports.
