Martha's Journey, Renascence in a Mobile Home Park is the story of a recently widowed 66 year old. She finds herself alone, adrift, and uncertain. She makes a 1300 mile car trip, a metaphor for the life changing journey she must undertake. The subtitle word "renascence" represents the reshaping of her thoughts, her fears, and her sadness. In the mobile home park she finds the humorous situations, the pathos, the caring and the sharing of those around her change her outlook, lessen her sadness, and temper her sense of aloneness. This becomes the stage of her new life. She has found her role. Above all she hears laughter and she responds and knows that smiles etch her face. These aging physically hampered old folks still feel life's force. Is that not an irony in itself? And she is grateful.

Loving Arms examines the war-related writings of five British women whose words explore the connections among gender, war, and story-telling. While not the first study to relate the subjects of gender and war, it is the first within a growing body of criticism to focus specifically on British culture during and after World War II. How a story is narrated and by whom are matters of no small importance. As widely defined and accepted, war stories are men's stories. If we are to hear another story of war, then we must listen to the stories women tell. Many of the war stories written by women insist that war is not the condition of men but rather the condition of humanity, beginning with relations between the sexes. For the five women whose work is examined in Loving Arms - Stevie Smith, Katharine Burdekin, Virginia Woolf, Elizabeth Bowen, and Doris Lessing - this last point was particularly relevant. Their positions as women within a patriarchal, militarist culture that was externally threatened by an overtly fascist one led to an acute ambivalence, says Schneider. Though all five women perceived the war from substantially different perspectives, each in her own way exposed and critiqued the seductive power of war and war stories, with their densely interwoven tropes of masculinity and nationalism. Yet these writers' conflicting impulses of loyalty to England and resistance to the war betray their ambivalence.

From Women S Experience To Feminist Theology

What are the implications of adopting a primacy-of-praxis position in feminist theology? How can we respect the diversity of women's experience while retaining it as a useful analytic category? Do these twin resources of women's experience and praxis together imply that feminist theology is ultimately relativist? Through an analysis of the work of some of today's key feminist theologians - Christian, Womanist and post-Christian-the author considers these and other central methodological questions. This work examines the origins and development of the categories of women's experience and praxis and argues that the adoption of these resources ought to result in a hermeneutic of difference and a reluctance to claim a normative theory for feminist theology.
