""Feminist Utopias" is a richly detailed, insightful study of ten novels published (with the exception of Herland, 1915) between 1969 and 1986...A timely and compelling contribution to the study of the utopian genre as well as of contemporary feminist fiction." - "American Literature". "[A] stimulating cross-cultural study of the genre...Bartkowski demonstrates a well-grounded knowledge of the subject, presenting a valuable addition to the study of utopian and women's literature. Highly recommended." - "Library Journal". "[Bartkowski] recounts plots when necessary, teases out subtle ideas, considers form as well as the content, demonstrating considerable critical skill while providing a wealth of bibliographical materials. Among her selections are a lesbian separatist society, a genderless world of persons, and an androgynous arcady of polymorphous perversity." - "Choice".The utopias envisioned by Edward Bellamy and other novelists late in the nineteenth century were generally blueprints of government. As satellites of men, women were expected to share in the general improvement of society. The resurgence of the feminist movement since the late 1960s has produced a very different kind of utopian literature. Frances Bartkowski explores a body of work that is striking and vital because it reflects the hopes, fears, and desires of women who have glimpsed the possibilities of a bright new world freed from stifling patriarchal structures."Feminist Utopias" is a comparative study of the utopian fiction of nine women writers in the United States, France, and Canada. Except for Charlotte Perkins Gilman's Herland (1915), the prototype for feminist literary utopias, all of the works were published between 1969 and 1986. Bartkowski discusses Monique Wittig's "Les Guerilleres", Joanna Russ' "The Female Man", Marge Piercy's "Woman on the Edge of Time", Suzy McKee Charnas' "Motherlines", Christine Rochefort's "Archaos, ou le jardin etincelant", E. M. Broner's "A Weave of Women", Louky Bersianik's "The Eugelionne", and two dystopian novels, Charnas' "Walk to the End of the World" and Margaret Atwood's "The Handmaid's Tale". Frances Bartkowski is an assistant professor of English and Director of Women's Studies at Rutgers University.
