Her writing neither cultivates nor even recognizes difference as a motivating or psychological force. A speaking subject is inscribed, nothing more.

Or is it, after all, something more sensuous and somatically derived? In her many texts on literature and art, Julia Kristeva has focussed on the creative expression of desire and the erogenic body.
