The Woman Warrior

The Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston

The Woman Warriors is an anthology of short stories intermixing Chinese folklore and memoirs. It shows Chinese cultural stories in several contexts and through the lenses of several narrators with widely divergent viewpoints. The Cultural Revolution is a prominent thematic context, framing most of the stories to greater or lesser degrees. The place of women in Chinese society is also addressed at length. The text is widely taught and very dense in its treatments of folklore and modern analysis thereof.
