Beyond the Myth of Confrontation: A Comparative Study of African and African-American Female Protagonists.
Eko, Ebele
Phylon, v47 n3 p219-29 Sep 1986
Describes mother-daughter relations in four American and African literary works: Ama Ata Aidoo's "Anowa," Gloria Naylor's "Women of Brewster Place," Bessie Head's "Maru," and Paule Marshall's "Brown Girl Brownstones." Argues that the myth of Black mother-daughter confrontations camouflages deep-seated frustrations associated with racial and sexual oppression. (KH)
