ABSTRACT
A literary criticism of the books "The Golden Notebook" by Doris Lessing and "This Sex Which is Not One" by Luce Irigaray is presented. The author describes the two pieces of literature as exploring the same theme of feminist theory through the differing genres of a novel and a compilation of essays and interviews. She suggests that reading the works together produces an enhanced understanding of both. Topics of gender-based interpretations of the works and character analyses are addressed.
