Between Voice and Voicelessness: Transacting Silence in Laurie Halse Anderson's "Speak."
O'Quinn, Elaine J.
ALAN Review, v29 n1 p54-58 Fall 2001
Describes how Laurie Halse Anderson's insightful novel, "Speak" (1999), reminds readers of the distance women have come in identifying the "oppressive and unhealthy behavior of the silences that so often betray them." Concludes that the oppression of silence which generations of women have stoically accepted is now being challenged publicly and becoming better understood privately as well. (SG)
