Examining her theater, film, and television work chronologically, this text explores the career of French film actress Simone Signoret, examining how her work challenged traditional representations of gender, embodied three types of eroticism (a clean erotics, an erotics of power, and an erotics of desire), and deconstructed political and cultural myths of wartime and post-war France. In short, argues the author, Signoret offered a new history of the female body through her performances. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
