The essays in this volume provide an overview and critical account of prevalent trends and theoretical arguments informing current investigations into literary treatments of motherhood and aging. They explore how two key stages in women's lives-maternity and old age-are narrated and defined in fictions and autobiographical writings by contemporary French and francophone women. Through close readings of Maryse Conde, Helene Cixous, Zahia Rahmani, Linda Le, Pierrette Fleutieux, and Michele Sarde, among others, these essays examine related topics such as dispossession, female friendship, and women's relationships with their mothers. By adopting a broad, synthetic approach to these two distinct and defining stages in women's lives, this volume elucidates how these significant transitional moments set the stage for women's evolving definitions (and interrogations) of their identities and roles.
