Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection is unique. Judith Fetterley has recovered for us the work of sixteen women who wrote during the years when America writers were developing their distinctive styles and voices. In re-viewing the literature of 19th century America, she fives us the whole picture, setting the literary and historical contexts and allowing us to see the development of prose content and form from 1830 to 1865.

Synopsis:

"This valuable collection... should shift the ground of discourse on mid-19th-century American literature." --Publishers Weekly
