Über diesen Titel
This is an analytical survey of the works of three notable female writers of post-colonial societies: South Africa's Nadine Gordimer, India's Nayantara Sahgal, and Nigeria's Buchi Emecheta. The author contends that the three novelists tend to subsume social and economic categorizations under one dominant mode. For Gordimer, race dictates political identity and behavior; for Sahgal, class determines the appropriateness of political leadership; while for Emecheta, gender power controls and dominates political action. The implications of this for the nature of post-colonial political fiction, according to the author, are that narrative voice and political identity are in a state of flux. The three novelists are articulate and expressive with regard to race, class and gender, and in examining them together, this book shows that the post-colonial woman is part of a plurality or continuum in which she moves in various positions, depending on what ideology is imposed on and by her. The post-colonial woman is represented as a figure that is being constantly displaced or a voice that perpetually resists within a discourse that is evolving and shifting. She is at once elite and powerless, at once subversive and exploitative. This book analyzes the attempts of these three novelists to come to terms with the neo-colonial and patriarchal ideology that surrounds and limits them.About the Author:
