Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

* Each part has an introduction and selections are preceded by a brief biographical note about the author. * The section on "Learning" includes stories from Bobbie Ann Mason, Raymond Carver, and Cathy Song. * Part III, "Resisting," includes selections from Dorothy Allison, Audre Lord, and Ernest Hemingway. * Plays include Cherrie Moraga's "Giving Up the Ghost," Charles Fuller's "A Soldier's Play," and Susan Glaspell's "Trifles." * Many important selections from men (often ignored in other gender anthologies), including stories and poems from Sherman Alexie, Tobias Wolff, and Langston Hughes.

Synopsis:

Primarily drawn from twentieth-century readings, this text is a provocative collection which explores the links between cultural beliefs, social institutions, sexual roles, and personal identity. The fiction, poetry, and drama selections also demonstrate the diversity of gender practices as they relate to differences of race, class, and sexuality. Arranged around three themes-Learning, Living, and Resisting-this anthology asks students to think and write about gender issues within the context and background of gender.
