Women Writers of Gabon : Literature and Herstory Hardback
by Cheryl Toman
Part of the After the Empire: The Francophone World & Postcolonial France series
This book demonstrates how the invisibility of women in Gabon has led to the omission of Gabon's literature from the African canon, and discusses the unique elements of Gabonese women's writing that show it is worthy of critical recognition.
Toman explores the unique contributions Gabonese women writers have made to literature by exploring the works of major voices in Gabonese women's writing and provides a brief introduction to the younger generation of Gabonese women writers.
