Feminist Fiction and the Uses of Memory
English Language and Literature | Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies | Fiction
All writers are concerned with memory, since all writing is a remembrance of things past; all writers draw on the past, mine it as a quarry. Memory is especially important to anyone who cares about change, for forgetting dooms us to repetition;and it is of particular importance to feminists.
