AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Telling one's story creates a space for oneself and by standing up to tell her story, Nova Peris, too, has carved this unique personal space. This article looks at how far Nova Peris has successfully used this space to not only present her life but also to represent her family, community, country and her own ideas about the various extant issues in her country' (p. 171).

    'Women's Writing in English: India and Australia is a collection of essay which sets out to open the possible limits of the women's writing as a literary as well as social discourse. Moving beyond the plot of so-called critical practice it has come to represent a complex web of meaning produced through multiple strategies of reading and interpreting it. The present collection of critical essays represents myriad, interesting and insightful explorations on textuality and inter-textuality of the women's writing of India and Australia, its meaning in recent critical practice. Indian and Australian Women's writing have become intellectual curiosity these days. The contributors of this timely anthology have explored the subject referring to different genres in connection with their traditional and radical interpretation into consideration.'
