Spivak demonstrates how critics interested in social justice should pay close attention to literary form and offers new interpretations of classics such as Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness and Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own. The book offers close readings of texts not only in English, French, and German, but also in Arabic and Bengali.
