AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'It has been suggested by Susan Friedman that we might understand 'the geopolitical rhetoric of feminism' as operating 'according to a transnational grammar with a number of specific figural formations'; in particular, five tropic patterns: 'the metaphorics of nation, borders, migration, 'location' and conjuncture.' These tropes recur and can be recognized in Devanny's fiction, and also in the story of her life.' (p187)
