Abstract

This paper is a critical inquiry into Shauna Baldwin's postfeminist literary work, What the Body Remembers. How is the exiled female vision represented in this exilic novel? Does this diasporic vision reflect what the [Indian] body remembers ? This short overview highlights the "unhomely" sense of belonging of the female body in her homeland, India. Through an exiled vision, the Indo-Canadian writer, Baldwin conveys the voice of the silenced Indian woman and depicts the internal exile within which Indian women live as a third-space. This vision reveals that exile does not mean necessarily that the person is elsewhere outside her homeland. The sense of elsewhereness and exile can happen to a person or a group of persons even at their homeland.
