The Politics of (M)Othering: Womanhood, Identity and Resistance in African Literature
Taylor & Francis, Dec 12, 1996 - Social Science - 256 pages
This collection is a study of African literature framed by the central, and multi-faceted, idea of 'mother' - motherland, mothertongue, motherwit, motherhood, mothering - looking at the paradoxical location of (m)other as both central and marginal. Whilst the volume stands as a sustained feminist analysis, it engages feminist theory itself by showing how issues in feminism are, in African literature, recast in different and complex ways.
