Summary
This work is a history of American women writers from 1650-2000. In this narrative spanning more than 400 years and introducing more than 250 female writers, both famous and little known, the author shows how these writers were connected to one another and to their times. The author believes that it is important to integrate the contributions of women into the American literary heritage, making the case for the unfairly overlooked and putting the overrated in their place. In this work she gives readers the opportunity to rediscover long-lost great writers and to return to familiar titles with deeper appreciation
Summary
A comprehensive history of American women writers explores the contributions of more than 250 female authors--both famous and little-known--to every field of literary endeavor and reflects on their role in the evolution of our American literary heritage
