   schema:description ""While Winner was certainly not the first male artist to publish under a woman's name, his case is distinct in that he created an entire persona for Alice Hawthorne and consistently used the pseudonym for well over three decades. The Hawthorne ballads, as they were generally known in the nineteenth century, were among the most successful songs of their day, rivaling Stephen Foster's in popularity. Why would Winner make such a choice at a time when women were either struggling against the social conventions of the time or were disguising their own identities with male pseudonyms? Remson addresses this question and numerous others, shedding light on one of the most interesting anomalies in American music history."@en ;
