Aphra Behn's afterlife by Jane Spencer ( Book )

"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."--Résumé de l'éditeur

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

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

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.
