Aphra Behn's afterlife by Jane Spencer ( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2004 in English and held by 639 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."--BOOK JACKET
Elizabeth Gaskell by Jane Spencer ( Book )
10 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 433 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 )
16 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Literary Relations argues that kinship relations between writers, both literal and figurative, played a central part in the creation of a national tradition of English literature. Through studies of writing relationships, including those between William and Dorothy Wordsworth, Henry and Sarah Fielding, Frances and Richard Brinsley Sheridan, and Mary Wollstonecraft and Mary Shelley, it shows that kinship between writers played a significant role not only in individual lives but in the formation of generic traditions. As writers looked back to founding fathers, and hoped to have writing sons, the literary tradition was modelled on the patriarchal family, imagined in tropes of genealogy and inheritance, a process that marginalized but did not exclude women

The plot follows the fortunes of opposing lovers, one a woman of quality masquerading as a courtesan and one a wandering rake whose philandering days end when he falls in love with her. Several near-rapes and the tragic case of a jilted courtesan, another character in the play, balance the comic treatment of sexual politics in the seventeenth century
