This paper examines Alice Walker's short story "The Diary of an African Nun", in In Love and Trouble, from feminist perspectives. The first part focuses on the thematic and strategic continuity of this story within the whole book. In the second part, there is an exploration of the different ways in which Walker, through the narrative voice, subverts literary and religious dogmas and converts marginality (gender as well as race) into a source of empowerment, leading to a complex process of double self-representation.
