Feminist Readings of Native American Literature: Coming to Voice
Kathleen M. Donovan
University of Arizona Press, 1998 - Literary Criticism - 181 pages
With Feminist Readings of Native American Literature, Kathleen Donovan takes an important first step in examining how studies in these two fields inform and influence one another. Focusing on the works of N. Scott Momaday, Joy Harjo, Paula Gunn Allen, and others, Donovan analyzes the texts of these well-known writers, weaving a supporting web of feminist criticism throughout.
Drawing on the related fields of ethnography, ethnopoetics, eco-feminism, and post-colonialism, Feminist Readings of Native American Literature offers the first systematic study of the intersection between two dynamic arenas in literary studies today.
