About this title


In the framework of a romantic tale, Faizunnesa recorded how women were always treated as agents of chaos and desire, and how their resisting voices were always silenced in a religiously motivated society. This book examines her text as a critique of male dominance in the Muslim society of colonial Bengal.

From the Back Cover:

Nawab Faizunnesa (1834-1903) challenged established notions regarding womena (TM)s position in a Muslim society in colonial Bengal. Her "RupJalal " was the first literary text written by a Bengali Muslim woman. The translated text is placed in the historical context of colonialism and the nationalist movement of colonial Bengal. An analysis of the text is also included in order to invite readers to explore the woman question in context of Islam and/in imperial society. With the translated text, along with a critical overview and textual analysis, this book traces in Faizunnesaa (TM)s life and works the emergence of a self-conscious female voice by addressing the issues of social, political, and economic marginality of women in an Islamic, nationalist, and imperialist culture of colonial Bengal.
