Contemporary female novelists tend to portray the relationship between women and the state as profoundly negative, in contrast to various constructions in contemporary feminist theory. This study analyzes novels by Margaret Atwood, Paule Marshall,MoreContemporary female novelists tend to portray the relationship between women and the state as profoundly negative, in contrast to various constructions in contemporary feminist theory.

This study analyzes novels by Margaret Atwood, Paule Marshall, Nadine Gordimer, and Margaret Drabble to explore the significance of this disparity. The book uses literary analysis to highlight elements of state power that many feminist theorists occlude, ranging from womens still minimal access to state politics to the terrifying violence exercised by modern states. At the same time, however, feminist theory clarifies major elements in many contemporary womens lives about which the novels are ambivalent or misleading, such as romantic love and the role of sexuality in state politics.
