Narratives of Mothering

"Narratives of Mothering: Women's Writing in Contemporary France" engages with an important new trend in contemporary women-authored literature, namely, a turn to narratives of mothering from the perspective of mothers themselves. Although there have been some instances of this in the past, mothers in French literature have, on the whole, tended to be objects of others' discourses rather than narrative subjects in their own right. However, since the beginning of the 1990s, mothers' own voices have come to the fore in a new body of literature, comprising authors such as Christine Angot, Genevieve Brisac, Marie Darrieussecq, Camille Laurens, and Marie Ndiaye, among many others.
