Colonialism and gender relations from Mary Wollstonecraft to Jamaica Kincaid : East Caribbean connections by Moira Ferguson( Book )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing On Antigua, Dominica, and England, this book contributes to post-colonial and cultural studies by juxtaposing British and Caribbean writers of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries." "Ferguson highlights usually veiled intersections between the texts of Mary Wollstonecraft, Jane Austen, Anne Hart Gilbert, Elizabeth Hart Thwaites, Jean Rhys, and Jamaica Kincaid, and underscores their feminist agendas in the context of slavery and colonialism." "Beginning with a discussion of Wollstonecraft's polemic for women's rights in the metropolitan center, Ferguson shows how that polemic linked colonial slavery to female subjugation and male desire. In the very different social context of Antigua, Gilbert and Thwaites engaged in struggles on behalf of literacy and abolitions." "In the doubled context of England and Antigua, Ferguson then examines the centrality of slavery to Austen's Mansfield Park, and concludes with a lively reading of texts by Jean Rhys and Jamaica Kincaid which display differing views of the British imperial project." "Colonialism and Gender from Mary Wollstonecraft to Jamaica Kincaid traces a discourse of struggle between writers and activists at the metropolitan center and those at the political periphery. "The continuum of their writings," notes Ferguson, "further suggests that during 150 years of slavery, emancipation, and postcolonialism, recognition of the link between gender and colonial relations became commensurately more clear.""--Jacket

A human necklace : the African diaspora and Paule Marshall's fiction by Moira Ferguson( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 209 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Brown Girl, Brownstones (1959) to The Fisher King (2000), Paule Marshall's novels, novellas, and short stories include a rich cast of unforgettable men, women, and children who forge spiritual as well as emotional and geographical paths toward their ancestors. In this, the first critical study to address all of Marshall's fiction, Moira Ferguson argues that Marshall's work collectively constitutes a multigenerational saga of the African diaspora across centuries and continents. In creating a space for her characters' interrupted lives and those of their elders and ancestors, Ferguson argues, Marshall trains a spotlight on slavery's wake and engages her fiction in the service of healing deep global wounds."--Page [4] of cover

Colonial and gender relations from Mary Wollstonecraft to Jamaica Kincaid : East Caribbean connections by Moira Ferguson( Book )

Focusing On Antigua, Dominica, and England, this book contributes to post-colonial and cultural studies by juxtaposing British and Caribbean writers of the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries.

Maria : or, The wrongs of woman by Mary Wollstonecraft( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Maria, Wollstonecraft pursues in fictional form themes set forth in A vindication of the rights of woman. Her story of a woman incarcerated in a madhouse by her abusive husband dramatizes the effect of the English marriage laws, which made women virtually the property of their husbands. Left uncompleted at Wollstonecraft's early death, Maria remains a powerful work of propaganda, a unique picture of women's status in eighteenth-century England."--Page 4 of cover
Subject to Others (Routledge Revivals) : British Women Writers and Colonial Slavery, 1670-1834 by Moira Ferguson( Book )

3 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1992, Subject to Others considers the intersection between late seventeenth- to early nineteenth-century British female writers and the colonial debate surrounding slavery and abolition. Beginning with an overview that sets the discussion in context, Moira Ferguson then chronicles writings by Anglo-Saxon women and one African-Caribbean ex-slave woman, from between 1670 and 1834, on the abolition of the slave trade and the emancipation of slaves. Through studying the writings of around thirty women in total, Ferguson concludes that white British women, as a result of their class position, religious affiliation and evolving conceptions of sexual difference, constructed a colonial discourse about Africans in general and slaves in particular. Crucially, the feminist propensity to align with anti-slavery activism helped to secure the political self-liberation of white British women. A fascinating and detailed text, this volume will be of particular interest to undergraduate students researching colonial British female writers, early feminist discourse, and the anti-slavery debate
