Hagar

Hagar Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The first female novelist to top twentieth-century best-seller lists, Mary Johnston was also one of the most prominent and interesting southern suffragists. Hagar, an extraordinary prescient novel published in 1913, brings together her fictional flair and her serious committed feminism. An introduction by Marjorie Spruill Wheeler locates the novel in its historical context and enhances its value to the study of women in southern, and American, history and literature.

Book News Annotation:

Reprint of the novel, previously published by Houghton Mifflin in 1913, with a new (36 p.) introduction and bibliographic notes.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

A work of great scope, Hagar takes a sheltered daughter of the postwar South from family plantation to New York City tenement, from Fabian London to Caribbean moon-light. The story's heroine, young Hagar Ashendyne, questions the constraints of her culture and eventually, through the freedom gained by her writing career, escapes its restrictions.
