Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now, the much-anticipated Third Edition responds to the wealth of writing by women across the globe with the inclusion of 61 new authors (219 in all) whose diverse works span six centuries. A more flexible two-volume format and a versatile new companion reader make the Third Edition an even better teaching tool. "As diversity itself has shaped the evolution of feminist criticism, from its early preoccupation with women's shared experiences to its more recent absorption in the complex issues and assumptions informing English-language texts by women writers of diverse geographical, cultural, racial, sexual, religious, and class origins and influences, so diversity has shaped the revisions of this anthology." --From the Preface

Book News Annotation:

In this update of the 1996 and 1985 editions, Gilbert (U. of California, Davis) and Gubar (Indiana U.) collect women's literature from Marie de France (12th century) and Julian of Norwich (14th century) to Charlotte Perkins Gilman ("The Yellow Wallpaper," 1892) and E. Pauline Johnson/Tekahionwake ("A Red Girl's Reasoning," 1892). The editors note that this edition reflects the further evolution of women' studies, feminist theory, cultural studies, and queer theory. They provide section introductions, annotations, bibliographical essays, and a map of places of import to UK women writers. A trial subscription to an online resource is offered.
