This analysis of fictional journals by Alba de Cespedes, Dacia Maraini, Susanna Tamaro, Doris Lessing, Margaret Attwood, and Simone de Beauvoir explores the multifaceted presence of this very coexistence. The critical readings herein at tease out significant textual passages that most clearly revel a struggle that occurs on two different levels, that is, within the psyche of the diarist and between the diarist and the phallocentric society that opposes her access to writing.
