“No Name Woman”

For my amazing Ethnic American class, I had to choose someone who represents what an American really means for my presentation and I chose the author, Maxine Hong Kingston, using her novel, “The Woman Warrior.” I am focusing on her first chapter, “No Name Woman.” When I researched information about Maxine Hong Kingston and why she wrote “The Woman Warrior,” I found that, she focuses on gender and ethnicity and how it affects the lives of women, especially in the Chinese culture. I read this novel in my American Literature II class in a previous semester and I loved the mystery of the first chapter and how I learned that woman are shamed upon for their specific actions in the Chinese culture as well. I can definitely see how I can connect this story to the view of what is an American is and how this author has such a powerful voice, which is why I chose her.
