Abstract
This paper analyzes Joy Harjo’s poems, “The Woman Hanging from theThirteenth Floor Window” in She Had Some Horses and “Strange Fruit” in InMad Love and War, in terms of postcolonial feminism, particularly focusing onthe concept of the subaltern. The two poems illustrate Harjo’s concern over andefforts for restoring marginalized and silenced voice of women of color in poeticrepresentations. “The Woman Hanging” deals with a story of Native Americanwomen from Ojibwe due to the colonial relocation policy, which represents thehistory of the dispossessed and displaced Native Americans and other minoritiesas well. Inspired by and taking its title from Abel Meeropol’s same-titledanti-lynching poem, “Strange Fruit,” engages in a story of an African Americanactivist, Jacqueline Peters who was lynched by KKK. Harjo’s poems suggest thepossibility and agency of the subaltern who “can speak,” which answers GayatriSpivak’s question, “Can the Subaltern Speak?”
