Ladies, please don't smash these windows : women's writing, feminist consciousness, and social change, 1918-38 by Maroula Joannou( Book )
16 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 564 libraries worldwide
"This thought-provoking and overdue study offers a radically new perspective on the literature of the inter-war period. Writing from a feminist-materialist perspective, the author analyses novels of sensibility, domestic fictions, lesbian writing, autobiography, speculative fiction and anti-fascist writing by Virginia Woolf, Rebecca West, Rosamond Lehmann Radclyffe Hall, and many others. Maroula Joannou provides an incisive scholarly and accessible feminist critique of the masculinist assumptions about literature of the 1920's and 1930's which have passed without adequate critical scrutiny."--Jacket
The history of British women's writing ( Book )
in English and held by 444 libraries worldwide
This volume 4 charts the most significant changes for a literary history of women in a period that saw the beginnings of a discourse of 'enlightened feminism'. It reveals that women engaged in forms old and new, seeking to shape and transform the culture of letters rather than simply reflect or respond to the work of their male contemporaries
Essays and studies, 2004 : contemporary British women writers ( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 266 libraries worldwide
Despite the enduring popularity of contemporary women's writing, British women writers have received scant critical attention. They tend to be overshadowed by their American counterparts in the media and have come to be represented within the academy almost exclusively by Angela Carter and Jeanette Winterson. This collection celebrates the range and diversity of contemporary (post-1970) British women writers. It challenges misconceptions about the nature and scope of fiction by women writers working in Britain - commonly dismissed as parochial, insular, dreary and domestic - and seeks to expand conventional definitions of 'British' by exploring how issues of nationality intersect with gender, class, race and sexuality.--Jacket
Essays and studies, 2007 : Slavery and the cultures of abolition, essays marking the bicentennial of the British Abolition Act of 1807 ( Book )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 241 libraries worldwide
On 25 March 1807, the bill for the abolition of the slave trade within the British colonies was passed by an overwhelming majority in the House of Commons, becoming law from 1 May. This new collection of essays marks this crucial but conflicted historical moment and its troublesome legacies
Women's writing, Englishness and national and cultural identity : the mobile woman and the migrant voice, 1938-1962 by Maroula Joannou( Book )
16 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 156 libraries worldwide
An exciting new mapping of women's writing in the 1940s and 1950s, this book examines Englishness and national identity in women's writing. Taking as a starting point the premise that mobility is a metaphor for the times, this book uses a synthesis of historical retrieval, literary theory and textual analysis to provide culturally situated and historically-specific readings of a wide range of texts addressing issues that relate to the changing experience of women in this time. Themes addressed include the displacements of war, women's radically altered understandings of their own sexuality, the retreat from Empire, the relationship of women to the idea of nation, the migrant experience, the literary representation of Welsh, Scottish and English identity, and the meanings of home. The book includes accessible scholarly commentary on Englishness and gender by women from Scotland, Wales, Ireland the Indian subcontinent and Africa and discusses the work of authors such as Elizabeth Bowen, Virginia Woolf, Dodie Smith, Elizabeth Taylor, Barbara Pym, Daphne Du Maurier, Jessie Kesson, Lynette Roberts, Doris Lessing and Muriel Spark

The history of British women's writing ( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
This volume focuses on women's literary history in Britain between 700 and 1500, a period traditionally marginalized in accounts of women's writing in English. Such marginalization, the editors argue, has been brought about in part by the erroneous assumption that there were no women writers operating in Britain before the emergence of Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. The History of British Women's Writing 700-1500 therefore vigorously refutes this premise by focusing on a wide range of texts written by, for, and in collaboration with women from the Anglo-Saxon period through to the beginning of the sixteenth century. By also considering women's writing in the context of the deeply multicultural and multilingual milieu which was medieval 'Britain', it uncovers a wide range of women's literary activity undertaken in Latin, Welsh and Anglo-Norman as well as in the English vernacular and, in so doing, demands a rethinking of the long-established traditions of 'English' literary history ₆ and even the concept of 'writing' itself
