Publisher: University of Texas Press
Author: Nawar Al-Hassan Golley
Type: Book

This book tackles questions related to the why and how do women present themselves in autobiographies through the exploration of Arab women’s biographical writings. The author applies a variety of Western critical theories, including Marxism, colonial discourse, feminism and narrative theories to the autobiographies of Huda Shaarawi, Fadwa Tuqan, Nawal Saadaoui and others to demonstrate what these critical methodologies can reveal about Arab women’s writings.
