Wild Words/Dangerous Desires explores the struggles of young women who try to define themselves with, and against, the pleasures, premises, and practices that mark the female subject in feminist avant-garde writing. Drawing on a study of six high school girls, it traces the affective and intellectual investments that encourage young women to embrace and/or resist the "woman" produced in this writing. A highly readable and entertaining account, this text offers a sophisticated analysis of female adolescent desire and identification in reading and writing acts. Such an analysis also serves to highlight the investments of feminist educators. For both teachers and scholars, the text will prove useful in explicating the complexities of transformative education.
