Rating
This bibliography is intended for a broad audience. Scholars, teachers, and students alike will find it useful for giving them ideas for further research, curriculum studies, or dissertation topics. Six chapters group authors under headings such as late-nineteenth century fiction writers; early-twentieth century fiction writers; poets, dramatists and experimental writers; intellectuals, reformists and journalists; and African-American women writers. Each chapter begins with an introduction that establishes literary and historical context, identifies general studies and relevant journals, and makes reference to writers not included, yet worthy of note. For each writer there is a brief biographical entry, a listing of reissued editions of her writings, and annotations of a broad range of scholarly articles, book chapters, and full-length books on her life and work. Appendixes include listings of selected women writers by birthdate and ethnicity.
