Post-colonial and African American Women's Writing

£9.99

Product description

This accessible and unusually wide-ranging book is essential reading for anyone interested in postcolonial and African American women's writing. It provides a valuable gender and culture inflected critical introduction to well established women writers: Toni Morrison, Alice Walker, Margaret Atwood, Suniti Namjoshi, Bessie Head, and others from the U.S.A., India, Africa, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and introduces emergent writers from South East Asia, Cyprus and Oceania. The book engages with and clarifies contested critical areas of feminism and the post-colonial; explores historical background and cultural context, economic, political, and psychoanalytic influences on gendered experience, and provides a cohesive discussion of key issues such as cultural and gendered identity, motherhood, mothertongue, language, relationships, women's economic constraints, sexual politics and women's lives as expressed in a rich variety of women's writing.

The book is in excellent condition, with only light rubbing evident on the glossy cover surface. A small section of the top right corner of the front free end paper has been clipped away. Clean and bright inside.
