As classroom text, Sullivan's work is heady with vibrant debate and slim heuristics; her intellectual clarity is stunning. De Lauretis describes fantasy as an activity 'based on the capacity for imagining and imaging' 1999:306which tends to transgress the supposed boundary between the real and the phantasmatic.
