Crazy Jane speaks as a sexual woman, but also as one of the disenfranchised subaltern groups ignored by the new state: the rural poor.

Each of us, male and female, is invited to consider the presence of the other within. Cixous describes this dynamic in terms of the "other bisexuality" mentioned briefly earlier: Bisexuality: that is, each one's location in self (reperage en soi) of the presence — variously manifest and insistent according to each person, male or female —of both sexes, non-exclusion either of the difference or of one sex, and, from this "self-permission," multiplication of the effects of the inscription of desire, over all parts of my body and the other body.

When the Russian peasants were resisting forced collectivization, Bakhtin celebrated the spontaneous collectivity of folk festival and humor.
