In writing of the agonies of separation and loss, Palestinian women authors living in exile convey an even greater anxiety than do writers in the occupied territories. Diaspora writers almost invariably compensate for their loss by recreating Palestine in prose.   Actually, this makes Ben Okri a prime candidate for that whimsical, half-serious definition that I once proposed for the true temperament of the writer or the artist tribe in general: a creature in a permanent state of exile, since his or her real vocation is the eradication of . Women Writing Culture is a must read for feminist anthropologists. This book provides a wealthy historical base imperative to new up and comings in academia.

Cambridge Core - European Studies - A History of Women's Writing in Russia - edited by Adele Marie Barker. Summary: Examines the physical, sociopolitical, canonical, and psychological kinds of exile that women writers in Western culture have endured over the last hundred years. Djuna Barnes, Isak Dinesen, Sylvia Townsend Warner, Jean Rhys, Virginia Woolf, Alice Walker, and Doris Lessing are among the writers whose narratives of exile are studied. This book explores the ways in which contemporary women writers have engaged with the negotiation and representation of identity following the rupture with the established sense of self in the homeland that is brought about by exile. Thematically organized, it presents women’s writing on such issues as intertribal and interethnic conflicts, the degradation of the environment, polygamy, domestic abuse, the controversial traditional practice of female genital cutting, Sharia law, intergenerational tensions, and emigration and exile.
