Liberating Narratives
The Authorization of Black Female Voices in African American Women Writers' Novels of Slavery
Reihe: FORECAAST
Bd. 2, 1999, 232 S., 25.90 EUR, 25.90 CHF, br., ISBN 3-8258-3919-2


Three contemporary novels of slavery - Margaret Walker's Jubilee (1966), Sherley Anne Williams's Dessa Rose (1986) and Toni Morrison's Beloved (1987) - are the central focus of Liberating Narratives. In significantly different ways that reflect their individual and socio-political contexts of origin, these three novels can all be read as critiques of historical representation and as alternative spaces for remembrance - `sites of memory' - that attempt to shift the conceptual ground on which our knowledge of the past is based.
