The rise of the woman novelist : from Aphra Behn to Jane Austen by Jane Spencer( Book )
29 editions published between 1986 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,084 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Feminist studies of women's writing have tended to concentrate on writers of the 19th and 20th centuries. This book, which examines women novelists from Aphra Behn to Fanny Burney, is intended to redress the balance and to argue for the crucial importance of the 18th century to developing female identities in literature. The scope of the book is wide, with references ranging from Sarah Fielding, Ann Radcliffe and Mary Wollstonecraft to Jane Austen."--amazon.ca desc

Aphra Behn's afterlife by Jane Spencer( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Aphra Behn, now becoming recognized as a major Restoration figure is especially significant as an early example of a successful professional woman writer: an important and often troubling role-model for later generations of women. This book shows that her influence on eighteenth-century literature was far-reaching. Because literary history was (and to an extent still is) based on notions of patrilineal succession, it has been difficult to recognize the generative work of women's texts among male writers. This book suggests that Behn had 'sons' as well as 'daughters' and argues that we need a feminist revision of the notion of literary influence. Behn's reputation was very different in different genres. The book analyses her reception as a poet, a novelist, and a dramatist, showing how reactions to her became an important part of the creation of the English literary canon."--Jacket
Elizabeth Gaskell by Jane Spencer( Book )
11 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Were women writers helped or hindered by an ideology of womanliness that allowed the good mother to be a writer? This new study of Elizabeth Gaskell's major work, including her novels and her biography of Charlotte Bronte, shows her negotiating her way through the difficulties of being a woman artist in the Victorian period. Her gender, class position and religious beliefs all contribute to the development of a complex author who sometimes appears as an optimistic spokeswoman for her society and sometimes offers a bold challenge to its accepted beliefs
Literary relations : kinship and the canon, 1660-1830 by Jane Spencer( Book )
17 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Jane Spencer's study ranges from the work of Dryden, with its emphasis on literature as patrilineal inheritance, to the reception of Austen, which shows uneven but significant progress towards understanding the woman writer as an inheriting daughter and generative mother."--BOOK JACKET
Political gender : texts and contexts by Sally Ledger( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In recent years, feminist scholars, through their insistence on the key role of gender in critical analysis, have brought about a profound revitalization of literary and cultural studies. This text draws together work by leading exponents in the field. The essays explore the operations of gender in the production of knowledge and the formation of cultural representations in a wide variety of contexts, from German romantic poetry to the literature of AIDS, from Victorian ethnography to tabloid constructions of race. All of the essays engage in problems of representation, intervening in curre
