Professor Tucker's Article on Stevie Smith

Lauryl Tucker has published an article in Twentieth Century Literature called "Progeny and Parody: Narcissus and Echo in Stevie Smith's Poems," in which she discusses how Smith's uses this classical motif to critique both Christian and Freudian accounts of desire, gender, and childhood. The discussion of Echo as a parodic feminist figure in Smith is part of Professor Tucker's broader scholarly interest in this area, as she's currently working on a book project centering on queerness and parody.
