The Fabulous Feminist PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Fabulous Feminist free pdf Born in Mumbai in 1941, Suniti Namjoshi is an important figure in contemporary Indian literature in English, a writer whose deep engagement with issues of gender, sexual orientation, cultural identity, and human rights infuses everything she writes. The "Fabulous Feminist" brings together for the first time in one volume a vast range of Namjoshi's writings, starting with her most famous collection, "Feminist Fables", and including excerpts from "St. Suniti and the Dragon", "The Mothers of Maya Dip", "From the Bedside Book of Nightmares", and her series of Aditi books for children, such as "Aditi and the Thames Dragon". Here readers will find her fables, poetry, prose, autobiography, and children's stories, works that are both playful and deeply serious. In these beautifully composed and entertaining works, she ingeniously reworks fairytales, Greek and Sanskrit mythology, literary monsters such as Grendel's mother, and icons such as Saint Sebastian, and stitches the ideas together with her vivid imagination and wisdom. Writing with insight and wit about power, inequality, and oppression, Namjoshi brilliantly uses language and the literary tradition to expose what she finds absurd and unacceptable in modern life. This provocative and entertaining collection will be welcomed by Namjoshi's fans as well as admirers of the feminist intellectual tradition.
