Abstract

"Generational Collaborations" situates Emma Donoghue's in the context of third-wave feminism, and explores how her retellings of fairy tales deconstruct binary political positions and the hierarchies with which they are associated. Productive exchanges between different generations of women in Donoghue's short stories, as well as Donoghue's own interactions with rather than rebellions against her precursors, Anne Sexton and Olga Broumas, model the active, creative, and collaborative reading practices that are encouraged of Young Adult and LGBTQ readers in her collection.
