Toni Morrison s Beloved as a Herstory

Since female speech , even when it is “theoretical” or “political” is “never linear” instead is “generalized” since the female writer “draws her story into history”(Cixous 881), Morrison recurrently exhibits circularity in thought ...

Essay from the year 2016 in the subject English - Literature, Works, , language: English, abstract: A herstory, contrary to a his-story, is basically history written from a feminist perspective, encompassing and highlighting the truths generally suppressed by male authors or writers. Janet Frame and Sarah Dunant stand as the prime pioneers of this school of narrative fiction and non-fiction. Apprehending the fact that women in literature are generally represented, instead of being in a position to represent themselves, the novel Beloved by Morrison stands as a herstory, and also fits in the criteria of what eminent feminist Helene Cixous in her article, “Laugh of Medusa” labels as an Ecriture Feminine(880) since she too rightfully believed in the essential need for women to place “themselves into the text” and therefore “into history” (879). Analyzing Morrison’s novel Beloved in this context manifests her aspirations towards not only highlighting the harrowing experience of black slaves in America, but also sheds light upon the gendered American society, where female deviation from social norms was not only deemed a threat to patriarchy but was also an aberration, worth condemnation

Most people have heard of Susan B. Anthony, Harriet Tubman, Margaret Sanger, and Eleanor Roosevelt. But did you know that a female microbiologist discovered the bacterium responsible for undulant fever, which then led to the pasteurization of milk? Or that a female mathematician's work laid the foundation for abstract algebra? Her Story is a one-of-a-kind illustrated timeline highlighting the awesome, varied, and often unrecognized contributions of American women throughout U.S. history, beginning in the 1500s and spanning all the way through 2011. The women featured in Her Story range from writers, artists, actors, and athletes to doctors, scientists, social and political activists, educators, and inventors, and come from all backgrounds and philosophies. Her Story is a captivating look at America's often unsung female champions that will resonate with women and men alike.

Veiling Esther, Unveiling Her Story: The Reception of a Biblical Book in Islamic Lands examines the ways in which the Biblical Book of Esther was read, understood, and used in Muslim lands, from ancient to modern times. It focuses on case studies covering works from various periods and regions of the Muslim world, including the Qur'an, pre-modern historical chronicles and literary works, the writings of a nineteenth-century Shia feminist, a twentieth-century Iranian encyclopaedia, and others. These case studies demonstrate that Muslim sources contain valuable materials on Esther, which shed light both on the Esther story itself and on the Muslim peoples and cultures that received it. Adam J. Silverstein argues that Muslim sources preserve important pre-Islamic materials on Esther that have not survived elsewhere, some of which offer answers to ancient questions about Esther, such as the meaning of Haman's epithet in the Greek versions of the story, the reason why Mordecai refused to prostrate before Haman, and the literary context of the 'plot of the eunuchs' to kill the Persian king. Throughout the book, Silverstein shows how each author's cultural and religious background influenced his or her understanding and retelling of the Esther story. In particular, he highlights that Persian Muslims (and Jews) were often forced to reconcile or choose between the conflicting historical narratives provided by their religious and cultural heritages respectively.
