Versions of the Female Stranger: Muriel Spark’s Preoccupation with Exile
My PhD thesis explores the figure of the female stranger in Muriel Spark's fiction, with a particular focus on what I classify as her period of exilic preoccupation. This project reframes Muriel Spark from traditional religious and postmodernist readings and refocuses attention on her representation of exile and women's experience of mobility. I argue Spark's own self-exile translates and influences the fiction that came after her permanent relocation to Italy.
