MetadataShow full item record
Trajectory of Women’s Writing from Fragmented Identity towards Creative Schizophrenia is the study of articulation of sexual identity through language and genre of women authors. Through the literature review of theories by psychoanalysts, poststructuralist feminist linguists and postcolonial philosophers, the fragmentedof sexual identity has been analyzed. Then by close reading of Alice Walker’s The Colour Purple (1983), Jeanette Winterson’s Oranges Are Not Only Fruit (1985) and Gloria Anzaldua’s Borderlands/ La Frontera (1987); a trajectory of representation of women’s sexual identity from fragmented structure towards creative schizophrenia is traced out. It has also been shown how women’s fragmented sexual identity befits the genre and language and styles the women authors choose as art crafts.
