Poetic Valuing Of The Female Self: Selected Women's Writings From Brazil, Cuba And Guyana, Dawn Duke
Duke examines selected women's poems, such as "Loveact," "Mujer negra," and "Black Woman," which depict real, historical, or mythical beings who are idealized and who achieved glorious recognition. These women rose against adverse cultural experience to leave their impressions on the forces of slavery, colonization, and neo-colonialism. The poems exalt the revolutionary stance of these women even as they make leadership qualities, combativeness, and resistance female attributes.
