    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 140.00

  • Women's Literary Creativity and the Female Bodyby Diane Long Hoeveler; Donna Decker Schuster

    Palgrave Macmillan 2007; US$ 105.00

    This volume attempts to engage one aspect of an amorphous and mysterious topic: what does it mean for women to create within particular literary and cultural contexts? How is the female body written on textuality? In short, how is the female body analogous to the geographical space of land? How have women inhabited their bodies as people have lived... more...

  • Transformations of Domesticity in Modern Women's Writingby Dr Thomas Foster

    Palgrave Macmillan 2002; US$ 160.00

  • Soft Canonsby Karen L. Kilcup

    University of Iowa Press 1999; US$ 24.00

    ? In their innovative treatments of seemingly incomparable works, these critics promote dialogue not only about the texts under consideration but also about the very nature of how we read across lines of gender, race, class, and history. Individually, the essays are insightful and storng; collectively, they highlight the vibrancy of current research... more...

  • Reinventing the Peabody Sistersby Monika M. Elbert; Julie E. Hall; Katharine Rodier

    University of Iowa Press 2006; US$ 33.00

    Whether in the public realm as political activists, artists, teachers, biographers, editors, and writers or in the more traditional role of domestic, nurturing women, Elizabeth Peabody, Mary Peabody Mann, and Sophia Peabody Hawthorne subverted rigid nineteenth-century definitions of women?s limited realm of influence. Reinventing the Peabody Sisters... more...

  • Feminist Criticism and Social Change (RLE Feminist Theory)by Deborah Rosenfelt; Judith Newton

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    This lively and controversial collection of essays sets out to theorize and practice a ?materialist-feminist? criticism of literature and culture.

It emphasises the relation of gender to other categories... more...

  • Engendering Menby Joseph A. Boone; Michael Cadden

    Taylor and Francis 2012; US$ 54.95

    Over the past several years, the question of men?s relation to feminism has become a fiercely and sometimes bitterly debated subject.

  • The Erotics of Talkby Carla Kaplan

    Oxford University Press 1997; US$ 37.99

    A rereading of the American feminist criticism of the past two decades and the literary canon which it has constructed as its foundation. It reads a group of feminist classics focusing on how each work represents talk and how feminist criticism has talked about these representations. more...

  • Writing Selvesby Jeanne Perreault

    University of Minnesota Press 1995; US$ 72.00

    Why ?autography?? Because there really is no genre for feminist self-writing. This is the territory, between autobiography and feminist thought, that Jeanne Perreault marks out. Looking to Audre Lorde?s Cancer Journals, Kate Millet?s The Basement, Adrienne Rich?s later prose and poetry, and Patricia Williams?s ?diary,? among other works, Perreault... more...

  • From the Modernist Annexby Karin Roffman

    University of Alabama Press 2010; US$ 44.50

    In the 19th and early 20th centuries, the majority of women were forced to seek their education outside the walls of American universities. Many turned to museums and libraries, for their own enlightenment, for formal education, and also for their careers. In Roffman’s close readings of four modernist writers—Edith Wharton, Nella Larsen,... more...
