Title Melancholic migrating bodies in contemporary Polish women's writing / Urszula Chowaniec
Published Newcastle upon Tyne : Cambridge Scholars Publishing, 2015


Description 1 online resource
Summary Reading contemporary women's writing as melancholy texts highlights their often under-explored neuralgic nature and emancipatory value. These "strangers in their own lands," as most recent Polish women writers and their work were described, are the subject of detailed analysis in this book, and are also positioned as the mirrors in which those lands are reflected. From this perspective, the melancholic strands in women's writing are drawn together to provide a diagnosis of the current situation in Poland, taking into account unwanted discourses, unwelcomed subjects and unresolved problems.Mela
