In The Empty Cage, the highly regarded Italian literary critic Carla Benedetti explores the question: What is an author? Expanding Foucault's arguments beyond literary discourse into art, film, performance, and industrial design, Benedetti maintains that the author carries out a historical function, integrally connected to the modern system of artistic production and of aesthetic evaluation. In the modern period, she says, any object can be considered a work of art, on the supposition that it has been produced by an author. Her book, far from being an attempt to reclaim authorial intention as essential, proposes an original theory that shows how the author, in the form of author-images and even logos, has become an important link in the modern system of artistic communication.

This second collection of short stories by Geraldine M. North examines contemporary life primarily in the United States, where Geraldine has lived for decades and has raised her family. But a handful of the nineteen stories in The Empty Bird Cage return to her native Australia, where Geraldine lived as a girl and young adult. This collection follows Geraldine's first book of short stories, Butcher Bird, published in 2016. According to W.D. Wetherell, author of Where We Live Geraldine North's love for the short story, her belief in the form and what it can reveal to us of life, underlies every word of her marvelous new collection. By seeing her characters so clearly, with such empathy and understanding, she makes each of them matter to us. Read these stories carefully, patiently, trustingly, for they have much to teach us."
