The Politics of the Feminist Novel

Front Cover
Greenwood Press, 1986 - Literary Criticism - 206 pages
Judi M. Roller's The Politics of the Feminist Novel demonstrates powerfully that a female writer's political attitudes are likely to influence her style as well as her choice of subject and material. In compact, yet stunningly comprehensive chapters, Roller shows that political novels by women share several characteristics: an anti-authoritarian perspective, a rejection of traditional sex roles, an end that involves death or escape, and similar symbolic patterns.
