Description
The Intimate Empire: Politics and Poetics in Women's Autobiography brings together contemporary and 19th-century women's autobiographies and travel writing from Canada, the Caribbean, Kenya, South Africa, Australia, and New Zealand. Through a series of closely contextualized readings, the book argues that colonization and resistance are deeply embedded in thinking about the self. Whitlock argues for reading women's autobiographies through connections, not because of any psychological traits intrinsic to their sex, but because what it is, and has been, to write as a slave, settler, immigrant, Jamaican, Pakeha, or Aboriginal has always been a matter of negotiation, a process of imagining the self through relations to others, a process of production at the heart of postcolonial autobiography.
