What I can tell you is that this book can be pretty well summarised by the five juvith used as epigraphs immediately after the title page: Some plain peripheral interest in Marx, Derrida, Bakhtin. Enabled Amazon Best Sellers Rank: If a series of highly educated, intelligent and well-read adults do not properly understand you, that is because your writing is confused, not because your ideas are too complex to be captured by mere language.

Aside from the unfortunate fact that it is written to be almost incomprehensibly academic, making it atrociously difficult for non-academics to tackle, Gender Trouble is arguably the most remarkable achievement in the field of gender studies, and the most important contribution to feminist thought since Simone de Beauvoir’s The Second Sex.


As it is, please don’t ask me for a precise point-by-point summary. More than anything, I’m impressed with the scope of Gender Trouble.

Indeed, sex, by definition, will have been shown to have been gender all along. I understand the danger of reifying the biological.

Sure, power might exist in grammar, but how the hell is writing in a really obscure way subverting that in any way, shape, or form? It’s geneor, and it makes this book inaccessible for anyone who isn’t a seasoned academic.

I love basically everything I’ve read by her, and I’m always excited to have the opp Butler has numerous loud detractors, and faces a variety of underhanded compliments, even on this very website, along the lines of comments such as: Monique Wittig This book is a working through of the implications of these five quotations. I haven’t researched much about performativity until now, but I’ve always been interested in gender and power.


I thought she was particularly strong on the ways in which gender and sex are related to sexuality and desire. However, a big drawback of this book is that it is, apart from being too dense and too technical, quite repetitive as well, and goes about in circles sometimes without a clear end. I suppose she inadvertently falls into a sad trap: Butler’s de-ontologization of gendered categories also runs the risk of dissolving the unity that every political movement.
