Kate Chopin's private papers by Kate Chopin( file )
9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 2,522 libraries worldwide
"Kate Chopin, according to her contemporaries, was a "woman of mysterious fascination"--And Kate Chopin's Private Papers reveals many of the author's secrets. Chopin (1850-1904), author of about a hundred short stories and two novels (The Awakening and At Fault), also kept diaries, wrote letters and poems, translated short stories and articles from the French, and worried about her career. Chopin's newly discovered manuscripts, published for the first time here, reflect her dedication to revision and improving her craft; her manuscript account books show her meticulous control of her career and her pursuit of audiences. These papers illuminate the growth of Chopin as a writer, bring into focus the reactions of critics to her work, and settle a number of controversies in Chopin studies."--Jacket
Kate Chopin by Emily Toth( Book )

This volume is a biography of American author of short stories and novels, Kate Chopin (1850-1904). She is now considered by some to have been a forerunner of feminist authors of the 20th century. Born in St. Louis, Chopin eventually moved to Louisiana when she married. Left a widow with six children in 1882, she turned to writing for her livelihood, and she was successful until the publication of her controversial novel The Awakening in 1899. This novel is the story of a woman who relinquishes the traditional female role by having an extramarital affair and seeking independence. The author attempts to capture the essence of a woman whose writings veiled the undercurrents of her remarkable life. From the high society of St. Louis to the backwaters of Cloutierville, Louisiana, Chopin was a keen observer and skillful raconteur of the unfolding relationships of men and women. She boldly touched upon topics rarely treated in mainstream literature, and she was ultimately castigated for this

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,085 libraries worldwide
Ms. Mentor's readers will find answers to the secret queries they were afraid to ask anyone else. They'll discover what it really takes to get tenure; what to wear to academic occasions; when to snicker, when to hide, what to eat, and when to sue. They'll find out how to get firmly planted in the rich red earth of tenure. Ms. Mentor's wisdom grows out of many a real-life experience: she guarantees that some readers will squirm. She lavishly dispenses witty advice, and valuable information, while despising psychobabble, postcomprehensible jargon, and pontification by anyone other than herself. She also insists that sisterhood is, and must be, powerful. Readers of Ms. Mentor's Impeccable Advice for Women in Academia are in for an unusual treat

Third in a six part series on the United States in the Fifties. This segment describes the personal unrest sometimes felt in the outwardly tranquil fifties, including dissatisfaction with women's roles as housewives and men's roles in the corporate rat race. Feminist Betty Friedan, Sloan Wilson, author of The man in the gray flannel suit, and Grace Metalious, whose steamy novel Petyon Place exposed small-town hypocrisy, are discussed as representative of the gap between the idealized nuclear family of the 1950s and the way things really were
