Synopsis: In Narrating from the Margins,Nagihan Haliloglu casts a discerning look at Jean Rhys's protagonists and the ways in which they engage in self-narration. The book offers a close reading of Rhys's novels, with particular attention to the links between identity construc-tion and self-narration, in a modernist and postcolonial idiom. It draws atten-tion to particular subject-categories that Rhys's protagonists fall into, such as the amateur and the white Creole, and de-lineates narrating personas such as the mad witch and the zombie, to explore aspects of de-essentalization, narrative agency, and dysnarrativia. The way in which Rhys's protagonists engage in self-narration reveals the close link between race and gender, and how both are contained by similar metaphors, or how, indeed, they be-come metaphors for each other. The narrators are defined in relation to their place in the 'holy English family' and how they transgress the rules of that family to become 'exiles'. The study explores the ways in which the self-nar-rator responds when her narrative is ob-structed by society; such as creating a community of stories in which her own makes sense, and/or resorting to third-person narration.

About the Author: Nagihan Haliloglu was born in Istanbul. She has an MA in English from Middlebury College, an M St in Oriental Studies from the University of Oxford, and a PhD from the University of Heidelberg. She is currently working on contemporary female immigrant writers in a British context.

Book Description Amsterdam : Editions Rodopi, 2011. Condition: Sehr gut. 212 S. Sehr gutes Ex. - Introduction: The Concern for Self-Possession Self-Narration: Conditions, Representations, and Consequences The Female Self in Rhys and the Category of the Amateur Positioning Rhys's Heroines within Colonial Relations Narrative Responses to 'Exile from The English Family' -- White Female Colonial Self-Articulation: Narrative of Displacement in Voyage in the Dark -- Colonial Creatures: The Community of Life-Stories in Good Morning, Midnight -- Quartet: The Making of the Amateur and Third-Person Self-Narration -- Intersubjectivity and Self-Arrangements in After Leaving Mr Mackenzie -- Membership in the Holy English Family and Mad-Witch Narration in Wide Sargasso Sea -- Conclusion: Self-Narratives for the Chorus Girl and the Horrid Colonial. // Jean Rhys (eigentlich Ella Gwendolen Rees Williams) (* 24. August 1890 - möglicherweise auch 1894 - in Roseau auf Dominica; 14. Mai 1979 in Exeter in England) war eine britisch -koloniale Schriftstellerin. Rhys war die Tochter eines walisischen Vaters und einer kreolischen Mutter. Sie wuchs in der Karibik auf und kam im Alter von sechzehn Jahren nach England, wo sie erst einmal Mitglied einer Tanztruppe in der englischen Provinz war. Während der zwanziger Jahre des vergangenen Jahrhunderts zog sie auf den europäischen Kontinent und wohnte u.a. in Paris. In dieser Zeit lebte Jean Rhys am Rande der Armut. Sie beschäftigte sich mit Kunst und Literatur. Der Beginn einer Alkoholkrankheit fällt in diese Zeit. 1923 fing Rhys an zu schreiben und wurde dabei von dem englischen Schriftsteller und Verleger Ford Madox Ford gefördert. Bis 1939 erschienen erste Erzählungen und vier Romane. Dann geriet die Autorin für drei Jahrzehnte in Vergessenheit. 1966, in dem Jahr, in dem ihr Roman "Sargassomeer" erschien, wurde Jean Rhys wiederentdeckt und errang literarischen Ruf. // In Narrating from the Margins, Nagihan Haliloglu casts a discerning look at Jean Rhys's protagonists and the ways in which they engage in self-narration. The book offers a close reading of Rhys's novels, with particular attention to the links between identity construction and self-narration, in a modernist and postcolonial idiom. It draws attention to particular subject-categories that Rhys's protagonists fall into, such as the amateur and the white Creole, and delineates narrating personas such as the mad witch and the zombie, to explore aspects of de-essentalization, narrative agency, and dysnarrativia. The way in which Rhys's protagonists engage in self-narration reveals the close link between race and gender, and how both are contained by similar metaphors, or how, indeed, they become metaphors for each other. The narrators are defined in relation to their place in the 'holy English family' and how they transgress the rules of that family to become 'exiles'. The study explores the ways in which the self-narrator responds when her narrative is obstructed by society; such as creating a community of stories in which her own makes sense, and/or resorting to third-person narration.
