Notwithstanding its "peripheral" status in Arabic literary writing, the portrayal of the woman's image in the Sudanese narrative discourse essays the protean nature of literary and intellectual activities in Sudan and the eclecticism in the status of the Sudanese woman (al-mar'a al-sūdāniyya) in the early modern period in the country. This paper attempts to appropriate her locus and location in Sudan's historical and socio-cultural landscape using the mirror provided by Mu'āwiyya Muhammad Nūr, Mulkat Dār Muhammad and Tayeb Salih as its guide. The dialecticism in her image which is evidenced in the creative world of these writers is thereafter sublimated into two strategies: Authority and Sexuality.
