Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This pathbreaking book of feminist criticism is now reissued with a substantial new introduction by Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar that reveals the origins of their revolutionary realization in the 1970s that "the personal was the political, the sexual was the textual."

Review:

"The classic argument for a women's literary tradition." Scott Heller, Chronicle of Higher Education

Review:

"The authors force us to take a new look at the grandes dames of English literature, and the result is that they will never seem quite the same again." Le Anne Schreiber, New York Times Book Review

Review:

"Imperative reading." Carolyn G. Heilbrun, Washington Post Book World

Review:

"A masterpiece." Carolyn See, Los Angeles Times Book Review

Synopsis:

In this work of feminist literary criticism the authors explore the works of many major 19th-century women writers. They chart a tangible desire expressed for freedom from the restraints of a confining patriarchal society and trace a distinctive female literary tradition.
