Bois Sauvage as biotope in the novels of Jesmyn Ward

Wendy McMahon

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This collection of essays provides a thorough and probing account of an author who is quickly becoming one of the most read, studied and taught contemporary writers, but whose work remains underrepresented in scholarship. It is broad and ambitious in scope, mirroring the richness of Ward’s oeuvre, and it brings together a diverse and dynamic range of approaches that reflect the scholarly conversations in which Ward is embedded.
