Synopsis

"Three Steps on the Ladder of Writing" is a poetic, insightful, and ultimately moving exploration of 'the strange science of writing.' In a magnetic, irresistible narrative, Cixous reflects on the writing process and explores three distinct areas essential for 'great' writing: "The School of the Dead" -- the notion that something or someone must die in order for good writing to be born; "The School of Dreams" -- the crucial role dreams play in literary inspiration and output; and "The School of Roots" -- the importance of depth in the 'nether realms' in all aspects of writing.
