Women’s Writing from North-East India (Hardback)
The present volume is a compilation of critical essays on some prominent women writers of the North-East. The range is eclectic and the selection of the texts of the women writers from this region further adds to a sense of variety. Seeking to uncover new dimensions in the configuration of the land and the people, the book is an attempt to provide a spectrum of diverse insights and perspectives. The issues taken up by the writers are dense, polemical and interesting. The concerned essays invariably deal with themes like, silence and invisibility; modes of oppression in the periphery; trauma and subject-formation; folklore and the role of women; documentation of women's experience, to name a few.
