Abstract

Through a comparative reading of Katherine Mansfield and Anita Desai, this article examines how a discordant feminist voice emerges through the elliptical and indirect prose stylistics of Modernism. By situating a comparative reading within the context of global and postcolonial modernisms, an analysis of the two writers registers how the aesthetics of Modernism enable a culturally appropriate exposition of women's conditionality; locating voice within the bounds of possibility and authenticity.
