This book examines Margaret Drabble's female Bildungsromane using a Marxist-feminist theoretical model. Thus it historicizes genre - the Bildungsroman - and also the specific kinds of journeys upon which the heroine embarks: marriage, housework, community, sorority, literary creativity. Integrating the theoretical work of Marx, Engels, Althusser, Barret, Gilligan, Hartsock and others, Ian Wojcik-Andrews sees these journeys as historically determined yet negotiable points of intersection that mediate between the hegemony of materialist, psychoanalytic, and aesthetic ideologies and the ongoing struggle by women and women writers for human rights.

About the Author:

The Author: Ian Wojcik-Andrews is an associate professor of Literature in the Department of English at Eastern Michigan University. Now a permanent resident of the United States, he received a B.A. from Essex University, a PGCE from Manchester University, and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Connecticut.

An interview with Margaret Drabble will be published this year.

Review:

«Ian Wojcik-Andrews' book on Margaret Drabble offers insights and inroads into not only Drabble's fiction but the fiction of a generation of contemporary women writers.» (Regina Barreca, University of Connecticut)
«The importance of Margaret Drabble's oeuvre as a set of studies in women's development emerges clearly from this fresh and engaging book. Wojcik-Andrews redefines the female bildungsroman around issues that matter for modern readers: housework, women's sociability, and the conditions that affect women's artistic successes. Drabble's fictions, he argues, articulate changing social arrangements in revolutionary ways.» (Margaret R. Higonnet, University of Connecticut)
