Rebellious Women: The New Generation of Female African Novelists
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 madwoman, 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). Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
