Transgressive Modes of Being: From Women Writing to Postcolonial Writing

Hasna Lebbady (Mohamed V University, Rabat, Morocco)

[complete essay]

In this paper I would like to demonstrate some ways in which writers such as Angela Carter, Alice Walker, Nawal Essadawi, and J.M. Coetzee attempt to transgress the modes of writing--and by extension of being--imposed on them by various discourses of otherness. I would furthermore like to draw a parallel between their concerns and my plight as a Moroccan teacher of English.
