Abstract:

The ghost stories examined in the project suggest that women's achievement of autonomous selfhood within patriarchal culture requires mourning or individuating from the mother without fully giving up their primary attachment to her. In "The Haunting" and "Housekeeping," a haunted house signifies the phantasied maternal body. The two works illustrate the equally deadly consequences of a daughter's re-incorporation with the mother as home and a daughter's repudiation of the mother as home. "Tongue of a Bird" proposes that, to live and love beyond maternal loss, daughters must reject the mother as home paradigm and recognize their mothers as women-subjects.
