Narratives of mothering


The first introductory chapter to Gill Rye, 'Narratives of Mothering: Women's Writing in Contemporary France' (Newark DE: University of Delaware Press, 2009). Chapter 1 sets out the rationale for the book, including the broad socio-cultural context and the issues it raises in relation to contemporary mothering in France. It outlines the structure of the book and its methodology, and introduces both the themes covered and the corpus of study. The following thematic chapters explore the phenomenon via case studies of texts published after 1990.
