Abstract or Summary
  • I am a woman who writes. I am a writer who is a woman. In the Words of a Woman is an exploration of how these two facts of my life merge and influence each other. It is a work written to mediate between the supposed dichotomies of creative and critical, personal and academic, imaginative and scholarly. My desire is that this text will serve as autobiography, critical inquiry, creative response, and credo. The form of this thesis dances between prose and poetry. I have thoughts that need to be expressed sometimes in one form, sometimes in the other, and sometimes in the interplay of the two. As a collection of essays, I have brought together works that are primarily concerned with my story as a woman and a writer with essays that articulate my engagement in other women's writing. Within and between the prose pieces, I have included poems that touch on the same topics, giving different shadings to these themes. This text is a May Day dance, a joyous enactment of a performance long in the creating and rehearsing, not without struggles and challenges, but I hope for the reader a pleasure to participate in.
