This article shows how Michèle Roberts portrays the characters in The Book of Mrs Noah as travellers in search for their identities and their dried out creative vein. The imaginary journey on board the Ark can be read as a process of self-empowerment and of acquisition of agency for Mrs. Noah and the other women, Roberts in fact denounces the role of the patriarchal system in silencing women’s voices in society and in literary representations.
