What is a summary the poem "The Fat Black Woman" by Grace Nichols?
1 Answer | Add Yours
"The Fat Black Woman" is summarized as an attempt to both present the three stereotypes represented (fat, black woman, woman) and to redefine the three realities being stereotyped.
Nichols challenges the white male constructs here represented and offers new perceptions of fluid, active personal attributes that undermine the cultural normative limitations and offer the physical as a participating agent is the struggle of the "other" against the superstructure, the dominant cultural power.
