Twentieth-Century American Women's Fiction : A Critical Introduction
This wide-ranging introduction to American women writers and their work explores how they have established their identity. Guy Reynolds examines the key writers of the period, both classic and lesser-known authors, and places their works in successive cultural contexts, from the end of the Victorian era and suffrage through the rethinking of feminist politics in the 1960s to the present day. Novels are grouped into genres, and several recurring themes are explored, such as national identity and political engagement.
