Abstract:

This guide celebrates the twentieth-century achievements of women writers across the English-speaking world as well as all the centuries before. This comprehensive work of reference on literary women writing in English with over 2500 entries written by academics, freelances and journalists, men and women, poets and novelists, young scholars and distinguished names.--[book cover]

"This Guide aims to consolidate and epitomise the re-reading of women's writing that has gone on in the last twenty-five years. This is an opportunity for stock-taking - a timely project, when so much writing has been rediscovered, reclaimed and republished." "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 day." "The book reflects the spread of literacy, the history of colonisation and the development of post-colonial cultures using and changing the English language. The entries are written by contributors from all the countries covered."--BOOK JACKET.
