Traditions and Change in American Women's Writing

Elaine Showalter

A Clarendon Press Publication

In this book, a leading feminist critic turns to American women authors to explore the diversity of our culture and to question the concept of a single national literature or identity. She discusses recent African-American, feminist, and post-colonial scholarship, and provides provocative readings of classic and lesser-known women's writings. Full of wit and insight, this book builds a new appreciation for the complexity of a hidden side of American literature.
