Feminism and Contemporary Women Writers: Rethinking Subjectivity (Hardback)Radha Chakravarty (author)
- We can order this
This book attempts to deal with the problem of literary subjectivity in theory and practice. The works of six contemporary women writers - Doris Lessing, Anita Desai, Mahasweta Devi, Buchi Emecheta, Margaret Atwood and Toni Morrison - are discussed as potential ways of testing and expanding the theoretical debate. A brief history of subjectivity and subject formation is reviewed in the light of the works of thinkers such as Hobbes, Hume, Kant, Hegel, Marx, Nietzsche, Raymond Williams and Stephen Greenblatt, and the work of leading feminists is also seen contributing to the debate substantially.
