Home Matters: Longing and Belonging. Rubenstein argues that nostalgia functions narratively as a strategy for interrogating not only notions of home, homesickness, and homeland but also cultural historical dislocation, aging, and moral responsibility. Pages 1-9. Is Mother Home? Front Matter. These narratives re-frame a significant locus of concern in contemporary (female) experience: personal and/or cultural dis-placement and longing for home are ultimately transmuted - imaginatively, at least - by a restorative vision that enables healing and emotional repair. fiction Virginia Woolf women.

Despite its typically regressive associations with homesickness, nostalgia may also function progressively by imaginatively securing, and mending or repairing the past. Looking at fiction by British and American women writers of different generations and ethnicities, Rubenstein explores tensions between home and exile, insider and outsider, longing and belonging, loss and recovery, mourning and emotional resolution. She argues that nostalgia is a strategy for interrogating not only notions of home, homesickness, and homeland but also cultural or historical dislocation, aging, and moral responsibility. These narratives address a concern in contemporary women's experience: personal and/or cultural displacement are restored--imaginatively, at least--by a vision of healing and emotional repair.
