About the Author

The Author: Yi-Lin Yu earned her Ph.D. in English from Lancaster University, United Kingdom. She is Associate Professor in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures at National I-Lan University in Taiwan. She has publications in both English and Chinese. Her recent work on mother-daughter relationships has been published in The Thirdspace and The Journal of the Association for Research on Mothering.


Yi-Lin Yu's deployment of powerful psychoanalytic ideas of subject-relation theorists is complex and persuasive, her wide choice of literary texts challenges oversimple formulations of matrilineal narratives, and her attention to narrative structure demonstrates her attention to textual detail and structure. In addition, the exposition is beautifully lucid and the scholarship well grounded. (Alison Easton, Senior Lecturer in English Literature, Lancaster University, United Kingdom) Yi-Lin Yu's exciting and innovative work on matrilineal family romances is an admirable study of theories and texts in the most recent phase of feminist maternal scholarship. Her feminist readings of matrilineal narratives extend into new areas, such as the diasporic narrative, bringing the complex insights afforded by literary texts into a new synthesis of theory and literary practice. (Tess Cosslett, Author of 'Women Writing Childbirth: Modern Discourses of Motherhood')
