520    This work offers an analysis of an emerging genre in 
       African-American and Caribbean fiction: the novels of 
       black women writers who have returned to their ancestral 
       past. In novels like Toni Morrison's "Beloved" , Jean 
       Rhys' "Wide Sargasso Sea", and Maryse Conde's "I, Tituba",
       "magical" black daughters return to sites of trauma 
       through visions, dreams, and memories. Rody reads these 
       texts as allegorical expressions of the desire of writers 
       newly emerging into cultural authority to reclaim their 
       difficult inheritance, and finds a counter-plot of 
       heroines' encounters with women of other racial and ethnic
       groups running through these works
