Notes

First trade edition, service de presse copy. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title "Pour Raymond Federman avec amitîé Hélène Cixous". The recipient was French-American novelist, essayist and Beckett critic Raymond Federman (1928-2009), who edited a number of Cixous's critical essays on Beckett. At the time of the inscription the pair were part of the same active French literary circle, Cixous having been appointed maître de conférence at Paris Nanterre University in that year. Cixous (b. 1937), described by Derrida as the greatest living writer in his language, is a French feminist, poet, theorist, and literary critic (Three Steps on the Ladder of Writing, 1994). In 1974 she founded the University of Paris VIII's centre for women's studies, the first of its kind in Europe. Le Prénom de Dieu, a novel, was Cixous's first published work, predating the publication of her doctoral thesis, "L'Exil de James Joyce ou l'art du remplacement" (1968).
