Nostalgia and Beyond: Eleven Latvian Women Writers (Paperback)

£42.95
Usually despatched within 2 weeks.

Synopsis

This book offers an introduction to the works of eleven Latvian women writers. For years, Baltic literary critics in the West have tried to assert that there is only one Latvian, Lithuanian, or Estonian literature; that the emigr, and the native branches are one. In Nostalgia and Beyond, the author fuses writers from both sides of the Atlantic to form a unified whole-the authors are women, they are Latvian, they write. Not only does the book provide an expert analysis of each writer's unique contribution, it also places each one into a contemporary context of cultural issues revolving around questions of history, nationalism, feminism, and literary theory. This makes the book germane to readers curious about the Baltic area, the Soviet and post-Soviet experience, and memory, nostalgia, exile, and resistance from a post-colonial perspective.
