    Book details


Cazenave (francophone literature, U. of Tennessee) examines themes explored in novels written by francophone African women authors in the 1980s and 1990s. She discusses how the act of adopting and manipulated themes such as the foreign or imposed spouse, the prostitute, the mad-woman, parent-child relations, the body and sexuality, and violence, abjection, and horror are an expression of resistance against social and political constraints imposed on women. Originally published in French as Femmes rebelles: naissance d'un nouveau roman africain au feminin (1996).

"Sheds light on a number of intriguing Francophone authors who have been largely neglected in English-translation settings. Cazenave's work is theoretically solid yet will be accessible to a wide range of readers who are interested in learning more about these women and their writing, their motivations and their impact." - Elizabeth Blakesley Lindsay, H-Net "Cazenave reveals a new generation of female writers with a more deliberate feminist agenda and a more militant rhetoric.... nicely balancing synopses of individual works and critical analysis of themes and tendencies, this book will be very valuable in libraries supporting the study of African literature." - Choice --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
