Abstract

Informed by a theoretical-critical grid in which the main hermeneutical paradigms of Gender theories, British cultural studies and Post-colonial studies converge to intersect in an inextricable way with the theories of Black British feminism, Black British cultural studies and of “Critical Mixed Race Studies”, the monograph focuses on the interpretative analysis of the narrative production of Bernardine Evaristo, a London-born Anglo-Nigerian Booker-winner writer, who is now considered one of the most original voices in the contemporary British literary scene. On the basis of a complex theoretical-interpretative paradigm, within which the analytical categories of gender and "race" are conceived and assumed in their constant intersecting, the volume aims to highlight the formal and content peculiarities which, in characterizing Evaristo's novels, allow on the one hand, to distinguish them both from Anglophone post-colonial literature, due to the changed perspectives that characterize them, and from that heterogeneous set of works known as "migration literature", and, on the other hand, to identify the moments of convergence and, conversely, of divergence with respect to the composite phenomenon of British Black literature to which it also belongs.
