Hélène Cixous: A Bibliography

Eddie Yeghiayan created this site in conjunction with the series of lectures Hélène Cixous presented at the University of California at Irvine in 1990 (cf. UC Irvine Critical Theory Resource) and continues to update it. It contains a virtually comprehensive list of the author's works (by year of publication) and wide coverage of critical studies (by authors' names). All of its authors and citations can be searched in boolean combinations, a feature that is useful, for example, in tracing collaborative efforts (e.g., Cixous and Ariane Mnouchkine).

Other extensive bibliographies can be found in the following works:

Cixous, Hélène and Mireille Calle-Gruber. Rootprints: Memory and Life Writing. London: Routledge, 1997 (on reserve)
M. Sandré and E. Prenowitz have divided the author's work into various categories and listed translations separately by language.

Sellers, Susan. Hélène Cixous: Authorship, Autobiography, and Love. Cambridge: Polity Press, 1996. (on reserve)

The Hélène Cixous Reader. Edited by Susan Sellers. New York: Routledge, 1994. (on reserve)

French Feminist Theory: Luce Irigaray and Hélène Cixous: A Bibliography. Compiled by Joan Nordquist. Santa Cruz: Reference and Research Services (Reference Department, University of California, Santa Cruz), 1990. In the series Social Theory: A Bibliographic Series. No.20.
This relatively small bibliography represents a careful effort to scan journal indexes, so it includes some material not found elsewhere. It contains a list of bibliographies in related fields from the 1980s.
