Abstract EN

This paper is an attempt to examine how Lynn Nottage deals with the female body and it is affected by the place in her play Ruined.

It adopts a postcolonial approach to the play which represents a good exemplar to explore how corporality and the place are of great relevance to delineate the sense of identity.

The paper comprises three sections.

The first section offers an account of how the body and place are related.

The second section tackles Nottage‘s views of the black women‘s status, and how she figures out the connection between the female corporality and the place in her chosen play.

Finally, the paper concludes that Nottage tries to raise in women a spirit of change though showing the strong link of the female corporality and the place.
