About This Book

Many aspects of the achievements and roles of women writers in Southeast Asia are explored in these ten essays and reviews. Women's writing - both in essays and fiction are seen to reflect the often conflicting perception of women in societies where both traditions and the pressures of modernity differ greatly. Aspects of gender perception are explored in Filipino cultural history and myth, in modern Thai fiction and in Indonesian women's poetry, contemporary Laos fiction, and recent Cambodian writing. A note on literary translation is included.
