Philippines Summary


Philippines by Helene Cixous

Philippines is Helene Cixous's reverie or 'true dreaming' which intertwines Freud's uneasy views on telepathy, autobiographical memories conflating Algeria and Paris, childhood and adult life, shared with her brother 'Pete', and literary evocations from Proust and George du Maurier's forgotten novel Peter Ibbetson.

Amid telepathic conversations, real or imagined, and life events uncannily answering one another from a distance, Cixous's dense evocative journey ceaselessly 'returns to its starting point' and, like the twin almonds in one shell evoked by the title, reveals intimate, secret bonds between scenes and beings, real and fictional. Its interpretive sharpness delivered with stylistic elegance and candour will make this study typical of Cixous's art, which plies between literature and criticism, appealing not only to scholars and critics interested in psychoanalysis, autobiography and the act of reading, but also to a broader readership captivated by the hallucinatory coincidences between life, dream and fiction, when 'Reality is the dream. The dream is the true reality'.

Philippines Reviews


"A fascinating text, whose highly personal exploration of the author's passion for certain books opens onto a consideration of the relationship between reading and childhood in general." Mairead Hanrahan, University College London "Read this enchanted book before it is too late to learn that childhood is indispensable for true reading, that the truth arrives too late, and that through the prison bars of 'too late' lies the path ETH the telepathic path ETH to happiness. Each step counts." Sarah Wood, University of Kent
