Tavares, Maria. No Country for Nonconforming Women: Feminine Conceptions of Lusophone Africa. Legenda, 2018
Keywords: African literature, women writers, Portuguese,
AbstractMaria Tavares's first monograph poses an immediate question: Are nonconforming women dispossessed from a country, any country? The provocative title sets in motion a study based on the comparative analysis of three female authors from Lusophone Africa, namely Dina Salústio from Cape Verde, Paulina Chiziane from Mozambique, and the Angolan Rosária da Silva. Tavares takes as her point of departure the fact that, despite their differences, all three were the first female writers to publish in the context of their respective independent nations.
