Spivak was first catapulted to fame as the translator and interpreter of Jacques Derrida's Of Grammatology , and subsequently became instrumental in creating and shaping the field of postcolonial studies. This book outlines and engages with the central tenets of Spivak's thought through a nuanced examination of the main themes of her work, including ethics, literature, feminism, pedagogy, postcoloniality, violence, and war. Ray adheres to the spirit of a Spivakian methodology as she traces and retraces the full development of Spivak's thought from her very early work to her most recent essays.
