Introduction

(Contemporary Literary Criticism)

Monique Wittig 1935?–

French novelist.

Wittig believes that "it is our fiction that validates us." In her novels Les guérillères and The Lesbian Body she experiments with forming a new mythology for the feminist movement. Most critics considered her novel of childhood, The Opoponax, an important and meaningful technical success.
