Description of this Electronic Book

This volume covers a wide range of contemporary and pressing issues, namely colonialism, displacement, rape, women's oppression and the manipulation of religious discourse through a variety of theoretical approaches to Marina Warner's fiction. It focuses on the theories of feminism, psychoanalysis and post-colonialism through the original perspective of metabiography as engrafted diaries, letters, memoirs and chronicles communicate the voices of the oppressed and the deceased by demystifying the mythopoeia constructed around and about them. The book also reconciles undergraduates and MA students to critical and literary theory through the study of Warner's enriching fictional works as close textual analysis blends with brief overviews of various literary theories without burdening the book or its language with forbidding jargon. This book will be relevant to students, researchers and teachers due to its methodological orientation, dealing as it does with extracts which can be converted into critical theory practice in class.
