n English in Africa - Imperialism, Labour and the New Woman : Olive Schreiner's Social Theory, Liz Stanley : book review

Volume 31, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0376-8902



Liz Stanley begins her study of Olive Schreiner with the assertion that Schreiner's writings, "whether these were 'fictional' or 'factual' in character, were supremely concerned with ideas" (1). This lays out Stanley's area of interest immediately: she focuses on Schreiner as a social theorist, moving away from scholarship centring on Schreiner the woman and Schreiner the novelist. This work, then, attempts to link Stanley's interests in Women's Studies, Feminism, Biography, Sociology and History.
