    Men PDF/EPUB Á Ebook Men EpubOn a process level Men Notes from an Ongoing Investigation is a successful essay collection Kipnis is a fluid writer with an eye for the mot juste she varies her sentence structures with grace nothing she writes ever feels forced If that sounds like faint praise it’s because alas I have a lot of problems with the sentiments Kipnis expresses in her elegant prose Here are the main three1 So Much Freud Lady you are aware that further work has been done in psychology since the mid twentieth century? Kipnis’s references to Freud Oedipal complexes and psychosexual development are so numerous

    Men PDF/EPUB Á Ebook Men EpubAt one point in my reading Goodreads in its infinite Twitter wisdom sent out the Tweet 88% done with Menwhich my younger brother promptly pounced upon I just wanted to let my little brother know that I am now completely done with MenPS After initially posting my review Goodreads asked me Which of your friends might enjoy Men? Inquiring minds PPS This also just goes to show how important the right title can be

    Men PDF/EPUB Á Ebook Men EpubThe title of this collection almost belies the wide range of topics Kipnis covers across 14 essays The cover is kitschy but the essays are deft especially The Lothario Gropers The Manly Man and Men Who Hate Hillary I appreciate Kipnis' fearlessness in skewering the men she covers while simultaneously poking fun at herself In fact some of the best moments in the collection are when she turns inward or identifies with less savory aspects of the men in question s

    Men PDF/EPUB Á Ebook Men EpubHaving read this in tandem with Men Explain Things To Me by Rebecca Solnit herewith a double reviewLaura Kipnis is one of those happy warrior feminists whom I'm always keen to read Her essays on different types of men that's types with a big capital Greek T for topoi show command of gender theory and a willingness to poke fun at both the sexes I couldn't wait to see the next balloon punctured especially when she looks at modes of how men and women relate Written with wit insight and provocation this is the gleeful impish even? type of book that asks us all to read a bit gender theory And to enjoy it instead of suffer itRebecca Solnit's collection of essays is not As in it is not witty nor laugh inducing nor attractive It's the sort of dour at least if you're a man feminist writing that scars young male undergraduates for life and discourages them from further reading in the discipline Moreover Solnit doesn't have the same solid grasp of gender theory as Kipnis Whe

    Men PDF/EPUB Á Ebook Men EpubI have never read Pride Prejudice but I picked up the basics of its plot quickly If you’ve never experienced it but have lived through a few years of American cultural productions it has seeped into you as well It was the radioactive spider bite that spawned an entire genre the gamma ray burst that even now continues to produce the next thousand years of romantic comedies You'll recognize the zippy dialogue you'll know the “will theywon’t they?” plotline the dramatic irony Or perhaps if you are someone intimately familiar with the story you are right now yelling at your screen that I am dumb that while it is clearly a comedy it is not the Ur romantic comedy You may continue to say perhaps that the inherent class divide between Elizabeth a

    Men PDF/EPUB Á Ebook Men EpubFacetiously I want to say not enough misandryIn a serious vein I was really disappointed by this I liked Kipnis' Against Love so was looking forward to reading this collection of essays Some of it was enjoyable enough I actually quite liked her Larry Flynt essay her essay about Andrea Dworkin and her essay about men who hate Hillary Clinton But other ones such as 'The Critic' and 'Cheaters' were dulllllllll and full of bland pop psychologising The ones that weren't dull were infuriating in 'The Manly Man' she presents a self congratulatory transcript of a debate she held with an old misogynistic guy meant no doubt to show how much she 'owned' him But to me it just reads like her rebutting conceptions about feminists in a really conventional and normalising way eg no it's not true that feminists are promiscuous inst


  7. Robert Miller Robert Miller says:

    Men PDF/EPUB Á Ebook Men EpubIn her essays the author takes a look at men from the perspective of exposing certain negative traits and then finding some value in those faults not that she doesn't find many of the traits problematic in relationships between women and men For example she finds Larry Flynt the publisher of Hustler to be a smut peddler and Scumbag yet she finds some redeeming value in him because of his genuine support for the first amendment and other seemingly uncharac

    Men PDF/EPUB Á Ebook Men EpubI expected from this book dissection of men and lightheartedness The cover and title created that expectation instead I got essays that are almost incidentally about men which probably made it a stronger book The essays are well thought out and well written And although they aren't strictly speaking humor writing they do exude a certain flipness which at times is funny I didn't like this book well enough to look up the author's other books but based on her writing I don't know if that's entirely fair I would like to know about her views on feminism gender theory and politics because the glimpses she allowed of herself made her seem like a very interesting person There just weren't enough of them for my taste

    Men PDF/EPUB Á Ebook Men EpubLaura Kipnis is one of those university professors whose lives I envy living in New York going to cocktail parties with other intellectuals and engaging in witty banter This book is largely about the kind of men you'd find at such parties literary critics political pundits other academics The exceptions are the first essay about Larry Flynt and the last about Andrea Dworkin So if you're looking for thoughts about your average man on the bus or the local hipster bar or anyone a non academic with a subscription to the New York Times might know you're out of luck Still an engaging read if not completely relevant to me

    Men PDF/EPUB Á Ebook Men EpubLaura Kipnis a film studies professor who's made a name for herself in irreverent yet provocative writings on feminism collects a number of essays loosely strung together in this entertaining book I'm not sure that the title theme quite fits all the essays but they flow nicelyThe weakest essay imo Gropers covers material presented in her earlier book The Feminine Thing in which collegiate policy on facultystudent relationships prompts her to attend a training class and lead a mock rebellion of the attendees against the trite platitudes Although presented in chirpingly self congratulatory fashion the complaint about the impossibility in knowing whether advances are unwanted until made felt superficial and glib the entire thing felt in
