Going Global: The Transnational Reception of Third World Women Writers
Amal Amireh, Lisa Suhair Majaj
Psychology Press, 2000 - Literary Criticism - 308 pages
This work explores the problems of reading and writing about women and their texts in an increasingly global context of production and reception. The ten essays contained in this volume examine the reception, both academic and popular, of women writers from India, Bangladesh, Egypt, Algeria, Ghana, Brazil, Bolivia, Guatemala, Iraq, Israel and Australia. The essays focus on what happens to these writer's poetry, fiction, biography, autobiography and even to the authors themselves as they move between the third and first worlds.
