The Cameras of the World: Race, Subjectivity and the Multitude in Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake and Dionne Brand's What We All Long For

Larissa Lai

Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake and Dionne Brand's What We All Long For present characters who are both deeply abject and radically free of the constraint of Enlightenment subjectivity. The Atwood text returns power tongue-in-cheek to white patriarchy, but the Brand text offers a glimmer of hope in constructing the citizen-subject-reader in historical, bodily and blood kinship with those whom the state, through the logic of exception, seeks to exclude.
