Access from EThOS:
'The 'female ecstatic', according to Elisabeth Roudinesco, emerged in the interwar years as a vision bom from both surrealist artists and : practicing psychoanalysts. Although Roudinesco is describing a masculine, modernist construction that has been critiqued by feminist scholars,I look at how this muse is reconfigured in the work of Djuna Barnes and Mina Loy through their use of the grotesque as an intervention in masculine discourses.
