Gilbert and Gubar argue that the madwoman image in most fiction by the woman author represented her (the author’s) double, the schizophrenia of authorship and the anxiety/rage of creation. Beneath the surface of the conformist woman’s text, Gilbert and Gubar detect a true woman’s story. Women’s texts, argue Gilbert and Gubar, construct techniques of evasion and concealment. Women writers responding to early authors present characters who resort to subterfuge to win the battles.

Collects the novels, stories, poems, essays, memoirs, diaries, and letters of more than 170 writers--American, English, Canadian, and others writing in English
  • Nalmetus
fantastic collection of fine literature and great stories! Bought this book at a great price for a literature class and I still use it today.
  • Dead Samurai
Bought this book for class, exactly what I needed. Way cheaper on here than at the school bookstore.
  • Zyangup
My class has started for a whileC Have not received the book yet.

The female literary tradition, long neglected, emerges as one that has not only developed concurrently with, but has also influenced male literati. In this large and fascinating volume we meet the minds that analyzed and chronicled the lives these women lived and observed.
One might argue about the selections included and excluded here. Pearl Buck, the only woman to win both a Nobel Prize (1938) and a Pulitzer (1932) is excluded.
The book is divided into 6 eras, each with a lengthy "period introduction" giving historical and thematic backgrounds for the works included in that section.
From the five earliest women writers (dating from 700 to 1600), women began to shape and define their literary voices. England's first professional woman writer, Aphra Behn, whose literary career began in 1670, is the writer who women must honor above all others. According to Virginia Woolf, "it was she who earned them the right to speak their minds."
Here the reader will find rare works such as Jane Austen's "Love and Friendship" and George Eliot's "The Lifted Veil." Three notable novels are included in their entirety: JANE EYRE by Charlotte Bronte, THE AWAKENING by Kate Chopin, and THE BLUEST EYE by Toni Morrison.
Poems, stories, memoirs, essays, plays, letters, novels -- all literary works originally composed in English -- over 150 authors decrying, exalting, agonizing over, and celebrating the things we all have in common: Life...love...and death.
This is a fascinating collection and one that will stand reading and re-reading over a long period of time.

This anthology has been more relevant to me over the years since I've graduated from college (with a BA in English) than any of the others I own. For bibliophiles who have an interest in understanding the unique position women have had over the centuries in articulating their thoughts, lives, concerns, desires, etc., this anthology is a must. I am constantly pulling it from the shelf to look up the author bios, historical background information, etc. But more than that, I really enjoy returning to it to read favorite poems and short stories by the most celebrated women writers of all time. I have given this anthology as a gift and recommended it on numerous occasions to friends and acquaintances who are interested in further understanding women's history, literature, feminism, etc. I also have some of the literary criticism the editors have written (Madwomen in the Attic, others) and recommend those as well.

Had to take a diversity course in college, and chose Women's lit. It's not my passion, but it was fascinating to discover an entire literary tradition that nobody had told me anything about in high school. If you think Women's literature is just Woolf, the Brontes, and Frankenstein, this book will quickly change your mind. Not every story is a gem, nor is every poem a vision, but the wide range of voices guarantees you'll discover or rediscover a favorite author. Plus, this book includes the only decent thing Toni Morrison has ever written, a musing on memory called "Recitatif". It alone is worth the price of admission.

This anthology is an invaluable resource. It certainly must omit some works that "should" be in it. There is only so much space and future editions will surely correct the omissions. I would like to point out, however, that Buck is not the only woman to win both Nobel and Pulitzer. Toni Morrison has also won both awards for her literature.
I was made to buy this for an English class, but I am sure glad that I did. The overview of literature written by women is exhaustive, but this book is a must have for any student of Women and literature, as well as Women's Studies majors or minors.
