Sample text

His literary analysis of resilience in childhood forms an approximate precedent for this work. His starting point is the juxtaposition between Toni Morrison’s 1970 The Bluest Eye and Maya Angelou’s 1969 I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, as texts that represent clearly contrasting “unresilience” and resilience respectively. This understanding is deepened by the inclusion of Shakespeare’s late play (it is estimated that the first performance was in 1610 or 1611) The Winter’s Tale as another dramatic (and what Marina Warner calls an “inside out,” 63 ) reading of Ovid’s version of the Pygmalion text in the statue scene at the end.

Hughes employs the language of madness to describe the all-consuming effects of this phobia; his Pygmalion is incarcerated in a paradox in which he loves women but is terrified of them. This is a long way from the self-satisfied, sneering isolate of the first text. In this version, the sculptor himself is in desperate need of transformation, because he is locked up within himself as well as within his studio. Trapped, he is left lonely and living a kind of death-inlife existence. The phobia would be bad enough, were it not for the accompanying adoration of females.

This range represents a deliberate attempt to subvert the norms of writing in educational research and to attempt to demonstrate alternatives. 59 Finally, the approach taken here is an attempt to address the challenge that is sincerely and passionately articulated by the author of the nearest study I could find as a precedent for this book—Daniel Challener’s book Stories of Resilience in Childhood. Defending his choice of a theoretical framework60 for reading the various literary autobiographies, he rejects deconstruction entirely: Critics may have shown how deconstructive analysis could be used for political ends.
