Book Description

March 1, 1996 0820426644 978-0820426648
Senegal has to date produced the largest group of women writers in French-speaking West Africa. The Senegalese Novel by Women examines the novels and autobiographies published since 1975, focussing on the works of Nafissatou Diallo, Mariama Ba and Aminata Sow Fall, while also paying significant attention to novelists such as Ken Bugul and Aminata Maïga Ka. The analysis illuminates the gender perspective of the writers, particularly with regard to the special position of women in the conflict between tradition and modernity. It also reveals their determination to equal their male counterparts in the teacher-educator role.
--This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Editorial Reviews

Review

«'The Senegalese Novel by Women: Through Their Own Eyes' is a useful research tool that provides a concise survey of Senegalese women's literature. It contains precise information on a variety of subjects, notably the impact of the system of colonial education on women's writing as well as judicious assessments of the structural coherence of the works of Diallo, Bâ, and Sow Fall.» (Sylvie Kandé, Research in African Literatures)
--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
