Özet
Like any other Caribbean author, Edwidge Danticat focuses on political issues in her fiction. Being an immigrant to the United States, her work is enhanced with a keen insight of a woman who faced the trauma and predicaments in her own native country, Haiti. Her fiction, generally speaking, handles issues of abused women in one way or another and protests injustice and oppression. This kind of oppression extends the traditional one depicted in novels written by white female writers, who call for equal rights with men and reject the traditional roles that confine them to the home. This study deals with Danticat’s novel Breath, Eyes, Memory and its representation of the nightmarish consequences of the political struggle on the life of the female characters in postcolonial times. It sheds light on the traumatic experience of these women and their inability to come to terms with their wounding past even after they escaped the abuse and violence in their native country.

This kind of oppression extends the traditional one depicted in novels written by white female writers, who call for equal rights with men and reject the traditional roles that confine them to the home. This study deals with Danticat’s novel Breath, Eyes, Memory and its representation of the nightmarish consequences of the political struggle on the life of the female characters in postcolonial times.
