The once and future history of sex and gender
Susan Gubar, Distinguished Professor of English at Indiana University, is the author of many books, including The Madwoman in the Attic: The Woman Writer and the Nineteenth-Century Literary Imagination, coauthored with Sandra M. Gilbert.
"Spoken from the heart, Rooms of Our Own provides a powerful antidote to the pessimism so often expressed about 'feminism 'or 'the women 's movement 'or younger women 's seeming lack of interest in battles that still need to be fought. Gubar, one of the foremost pioneers, addresses these issues with elegance and wit, elucidating the multiple currents swirling around gender studies and social activism today and illustrating why they still profoundly matter. Rooms of Our Own speaks as much to the students she so lovingly depicts as to those of us who teach them." Brenda R. Silver, Mary Brinsmead Wheelock Professor, Dartmouth College "Rooms of Our Own w ill charm and hearten fans of Woolf 's works. Indeed, much of the delight and effectiveness of the book comes from Gubar 's deft incorporation not only of Woolf 's structure, but of her memorable turns of phrase. As an experiment, one cannot imagine this being done otherwise or better." Maria DiBattista, professor of English and comparative literature, Princeton University
