The Representation of Women at in Broken Verses by Kamila Shamsie: A Discourse Analysis

Tahira Jabeen, Amna Noor Hussain, Shahida Khalique, Abdul Hamid, Asma Iqbal.


This study explores the representation of women in Broken Verses by Kamila
Shamsie at discourse level by using part of Sara Mill’s toolkit. In this novel, the
woman’s greatest dilemma always concerns her relationship with men, as if the
woman’s worst weakness is her very own attraction and helplessness towards them.
Finally, the study reveals that sexism and gender stereotyping are found in the novel,
characteristic of the writing of a female author expressing herself as a woman living
in a male dominated society.

Key words: Feminist Stylistics; Discourse; Broken Verses; Stereotypes
