9780521495257: The Cambridge Guide to Women's Writing in English

This guide to women's writing in English aims to consolidate and epitomize the rereading of women's writing that has gone on in the past twenty-five years. There are entries on writers, on individual texts, and on general terms, genres and movements, all printed in a single alphabetical sequence. The earliest written documents in medieval English (the visionary writings of Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe) are covered in an historical and geographical sweep that takes us up to the present. The entries reflect the spread of literacy, the history of colonization, and the development of postcolonial cultures using and changing the English language. The contributors are chosen from all the countries around the world--and represent academics, novelists, poets, critics, women and men. The result is a work of reference with a feel for the vitality, wealth and diversity of women's writing. Lorna Sage is Professor of English Literature at the University of East Anglia. She is also a literary journalist whose articles have appeared in such periodicals as the Times Literary Supplement, the London Review of Books and the New York Times Book Review

Book Description:

This volume comprises an alphabetized sequence of entries on women writers from medieval times to the present, entries on all the major titles, genres and movements. The Guide reflects the spread of literacy, the history of colonisation and the development of post-colonial cultures using and changing the English language: there are entries on writers from all countries of the world in which English is written. This is a fitting volume for the end of a century in which women around the world have become readers and writers, in many Englishes.

From Booklist:

There are guides to British women writers (An Encyclopedia of British Women Writers [RBB Je 1 & 15 99], The Oxford Guide to British Women Writers [RBB D 15 93]) and American women writers (The Oxford Companion to Women's Writing in the United States [RBB Ja 15 95]), but this book treats women authors who share a common language, not just geographical borders. More than 2,500 alphabetically arranged entries sketch the lives and works of individual authors, characterize particular works (novels, collections of plays, poetry, and essays), and define literary terms and types.

Coverage ranges widely over time (from the Middle Ages to the present) and place (not only the U.S., United Kingdom, and Canada but India, Jamaica, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Zimbabwe as well). Some of the writers, such as Colette and Christine de Pizan, did not write in English; but their works had "incalculable influence" and have been translated. Many literary genres are represented, from romance and mystery fiction to plays, poetry, essays, cookery books, scandalous memoirs, children's books, and travel writing. The signed entries are concise and range in length from one paragraph to a page. Numerous cross-references link authors and their works, authors of comparable style or period, and related topics, making this handbook more like an encyclopedia than a dictionary. More than 300 scholars contributed; noted feminist Germaine Greer and Elaine Schowalter, author of several books on women writers, acted as advisory editors.

In this compact but rich resource one will find not only Lydia Maria Child but Julia Child, Caryl Churchill as well as Sarah Churchill, and Penelope Fitzgerald as well as Zelda Fitzgerald. Illustrating the text are a number of portraits of authors, reproductions of frontispieces of books, and facsimiles of signatures and letters. A worthy addition to most reference collections, the volume will be useful for literature and women's studies collections in public and academic libraries. Though its style is fairly scholarly, it might also be of interest to high schools that have adopted curricula emphasizing multicultural literature and work by women writers. The Feminist Companion to Literature in English [RBB Ja 1 91] also crosses borders, but it does not have entries for individual works and does not include writers who have come to prominence since the mid-1980s.
