Abstract

Writing is seen as a historical act of reclamation, a way of recognizing and charting roots and identity. It is political act of breaking silence for women from a diversity of backgrounds. Particularly notable is the deliberate development of expression which enable the articulation of experiences, thoughts, feeling and arguments unrecorded or marginalized in the discourse of male and particularly white male writers. Morrison’s work carefully rewrites hidden moments in history discovering dates and facts, lifestyles, clothes and the paraphernalia of specific moments with great accuracy. She is equally careful to evoke the imagined lives of people at those points in history which she chooses.
