This ebook The Menstrual Imaginary in Literature: Notes on a Wild Fluidity (PDF) draws on cultural, literary, and critical examples forming a menstrual imaginary—a body of work by women writers and poets that builds up a concept of women’s creativity in an effort to overturn menstrual prejudice. The textbook addresses key arbiters of the menstrual imaginary in a series of letters, including Hélène Cixous the pioneer of a conceptual red ink and the volcanic unconscious, Sylvia Plath the initiator of ‘the blood jet’, and Luce Irigaray the inaugurator of women’s artistic process relative to a vital flow of desire based in sexual difference. The textbook also undertakes provocative against-the-grain re-readings of the Medusa, the SphinxLittle Red Riding Hood, and The Red Shoes, as a means of affirmatively and poetically re-imagining a woman’s flow. Author Natalie Rose Dyer argues for re-envisioning menstrual bleeding and creativity in reaction and resistance to ongoing and problematic societal views of menstruation.
