Gendered Narrative Subjectivity Some Hungarian and American Women Writers


Gendered Narrative Subjectivity Some Hungarian and American Women Writers by Edit Zsadanyi

This book wants to make Hungarian women writers accessible to an English-speaking public and presents interpretations of Hungarian and American literary texts by writers such as Margit Kaffka, Anna Lesznai, Jolan Foldes, Zsuzsa Rakovszky, Agata Gordon, Virag Erdos, Zsuzsa Forgacs, Alaine Polcz, Gertrude Stein, Kathy Acker and Jhumpa Lahiri. In literary narratives it is possible to represent female political interests in a decentered narrative subjectivity. The book illustrates that literary narratives readily accept the contradictory nature of identity issues and create an exciting and complex network of articulating female voices.
