Writing from the hearth : public, domestic, and imaginative space in francophone women's fiction of Africa and the Caribbean by Mildred P Mortimer( Book )

5 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If space is important in the realm of imagination and a key theme in feminist theory, cross-cultural studies of social maps reveal that men's and women's spatial experiences differ; women rarely control physical or social space directly. Positing the thesis that women's writing of Francophone Africa and the Caribbean offers important perspectives on the relationship of gender to space, Writing from the Hearth proposes close readings of Francophone women writers of Africa: Mariama Ba, Calixthe Beyala, Aminata Sow Fall, and Aoua Keita; and the Caribbean: Marie Chauvet, Maryse Conde, Edwidge Danticat, and Simone Schwarz-Bart. As critical readings of postcolonial African and Caribbean literature show that tropes of confinement appear frequently in female-authored texts - where home is often depicted as a place of alienation - this critical study examines ambiguities associated with domestic space as enclosure as it explores the relationship between the female protagonist and the inner and outer spaces of her world: domestic, imaginative, and public." "Writing from the Hearth probes the hypothesis that the female protagonist can move toward empowerment by entering the public space from which she has been excluded by indigenous patriarchs and European colonizers and by establishing a new relationship to domestic space or securing a liberating alternative space within it. Flexible and multipurpose, alternative space is a place of possibilities that can function as an antechamber for action, a site of resistance and performance, and a refuge for meditation, recollection, and fantasy. Here, by telling the tale, writing the creative work, a woman can affirm her sense of self."--Jacket

Silence on the shores by Leïla Sebbar( Book )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 239 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Silence on the Shores depicts the final day in the life of a Maghrebian immigrant in France. Having crossed the Mediterranean to "the other shore" as a young man to find work, he ultimately remained in France, married a French woman, and broke the promise he made to his mother to return home one day. Aware that death is drawing close, he fears experiencing the ultimate form of exile: dying alone, with no fellow Muslim at his side to whisper the customary prayer for the dead in his ear. Leila Sebbar's style conveys the simplicity of everyday life on both shores of the Mediterranean. Interweaving several monologues, she examines multiple facets of exile and the role of memory in easing its pain."--Jacket
