American Novelists Revisited: Essays in Feminist Criticism
An addition to a growing body of feminist literary criticism, these 18 essays reconsider the works and careers of the most established American writers through the early 20th century, including Cooper, Hawthorne, Melville, Twain, James, Cather, Faulkner, Fitzgerald, Hemingway and others more marginal. They span a variety of critical schools and perspectives and range in quality from the solid-but-pedestrian to the brilliant and provocative. Especially penetrating and articulate are pieces by Fleischmann on Charles Brockdon Brown, Nina Baym on Hawthorne, Laurie Crumpacker on Stowe, Elizabeth Ammons on Edith Wharton and Cheryl A. Wall on Zora Neale Hurston.
