With contributions of scholars from Europe and North America, this book covers the representation of women in word and image in the context of changing frames of mentalities in two distinct periods - the Enlightenment and postmodernism. Subjects and artists/authors covered include prostitution, English and French art (Hogarth, Reynolds, Beardsley, Greuze), postmodern feminist theatre, recent fiction by Cormac McCarthy, Margaret Atwood and Spanish literature. Special chapters deal with the construction of women in recent popular animated cartoons and computer games.
