5-0 out of 5 stars A Woolf in Sheep's Clothing
In this avowedly experimental book, Susan Gubar engages the problems and polemics of feminism in the form of a campus novel. It's a brilliant conceit, and the experiment pays off: she is able to write accessibly and dangerously about debates that are often hidden by veils of jargon and political correctness.

5-0 out of 5 stars Reinventing academia
I read this book many years ago. Every few months I find myself thinking about a point that she raised, whether about literature or about the lives of academic women or about strong women in the 20th century. Heilbrun is a woman of complex insights written in a clear and accessible style! A wonderful read for lovers of literature and for feminists, male and female, young and old. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A short, historically monumental book of unexpected force
Ourika is one of the first Western narratives ever to be told primarily from the perspective of an African, recently rediscovered from its relative obscurity.While Duras herself and her narrator are both white, the storyis of the powerful tragedy of the life of a young black woman taken in by arich French family in exile, and is mostly told by Ourika herself.Whilethis synopsis sounded boring to me when I first picked the book up, I wasinstantly drawn in by the engaging language and highly emotional episodesof the heroine's unusual experience.At times I was actually moved totears, despite my conscious resisitance.The character of Ourika is athree-dimensional gem of psychological strength, and her story is at onceheartbreaking and hope-giving.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A tale of an outsider
Lillian Lewis, the reviewer, has not read this book if she can call it "delightful."Nor is Ourika's happiness, actually ever "restored."This is a devastating tale about a young woman who hopes to be part of her mainstream culture, only to find that her black skin and Senegalese heritage will forever bar her from the only culture she's ever been a part of--aristocratic France.Duras writes a compelling novella, full of anguish and the unfairness of her contemporary French society (and one that resonates today worldwide).It is an extraordinary tale, but it is absolutely not "delightful."

5-0 out of 5 stars Ourika Transformed
Written by a woman in 1823, Ourika is a fascinating short work set during the French Revolution. Ourika is an attractive, intelligent young black woman who was rescued as a child from slavery.She is raised as any wealthy white child would have been.She excels in her pursuits and charms all.By chance, she discovers who she is, and what it means to be black. The truth changes her.This work raises many questions, and provides some haunting insights into human nature. Highly recommended ... Read more

Reviews (18)

4-0 out of 5 stars Good News Bad News
If you are in your sixties, seventies, or beyond - or even if you are a precocious fifty-year-old, there is much to be had in this ultimately enigmatic series of essays by feminist, scholar, activist and mystery houndCarolyn Heilbrun. Thoughtful, introspective, funny and only occasionally cantankerous, Heilbrun strikes many a familiar chord in examining the oddly satisfying process of aging, if not gracefully, at least with some unexpected zest.
4-0 out of 5 stars A Conundrum Wrapped in an Enigma
Carolyn Heilbrun wrote this celebration of life after sixty shortly after deciding not to carry out her long-determined plan to commit suicide at 70 and six years before killing herself at 77.To know that outcome increases the frustration and the spasm of anger at her -- how could she so exquisitely detail the joy she found in living over the last decade and a half of her life, and then one day slam the door on those joys through, I understand, an overdose of sleeping pills and a plastic bag around the head for good measure.The clue must lie in this book's last essay, On Mortality, and what Heilbrun seems to fear and foresee in that chapter, that at some increasing age indifference to life succeeds pleasure in life.
1-0 out of 5 stars The lady opted out
It is difficult to relate to this book having the knowledge that Heilburn killed herself -with the consent of her son-because she felt it was all over.Perhaps her isolation had more to do with depression or some such than the spin she puts on it in the book.Her suicide was presented as a rational and logical choice. I don't know. She was an excellent scholar and a feminist thinker at the right time-so kudos to her memory for that. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A little gem!!!
Though I stumbled upon the novel by accident, I must admit this book was well worth finding.The stories were simply written but were almost deceivingly fully loaded-- full of conflicting values, political ideology and agendas, and societal turmoil. The compilation of separate women's lives, so different from one another, but joined together by a common thread, hearkens back to a similar style of tale-telling found in many other cultures, such as Amy Tan's novel 'The Joy Luck Club' and the popular film 'How to Make an American Quilt'. Rather than choosing to write a politicized essay or thesis which reaches only a certain segment of the educated and politically literate population, Parsipur chooses to write fiction, laced with raw truths and posessing a clear agenda.5-0 out of 5 stars delightful read
I am an avid reader of literature of the Middle East and I found Dr. Talattof and Jocelyn Sharlet's translation of Parsipur's Women Without Men to be a delightful read. I have suggested it to all my friends in Princetonand beyond. It is one of those books that reads quickly, but stays on themind a long time.Parsipur touches upon issues that are of interest to menand women, 'Easterners' and 'Westerners' alike.
