Summary
In this comparative study of contemporary black atlantic women writers, the author demonstrates the role of aesthetics in defining the relationship between race, gender, and location. Thinking beyond national identity to include African, African American, Afro-Caribbean, and Black British literature, this publication brings together an innovative archive of twentieth-century texts marked by their break with conventional literary structures
