In her long-awaited book on cultural theory, Gayarti Chakravorty Spivak analyses the relationship between language, women, and culture in both Western and non-Western contexts.
Spivak develops an original integration of powerful contemporary methodologies - deconstruction, Marxism, and feminism - turning this new model of major debates in the study of literature and culture. In Other Worlds considers questions of theory across a broad spectrum ... while also engaging in ongoing debates with the leading figures of contemporary criticism. ... Spivak's work also explores the literary text.
