Critical condition : feminism at the turn of the century by Susan Gubar( )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 2,151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is feminism dead, as has been claimed by notable members of the media and the academy? Has feminist knowledge, with its proliferation of methodologies and fields, been purchased at the price of power? Are the conflicts among feminists evidence of self-destructive infighting or do they herald the emergence of innovative modes of inquiry? Given a feminism now ensconced within higher education as specialized or fractious scholarship, Susan Gubar's Critical Condition: Feminism at the Turn of the Century demonstrates that an invigorated concentration on activism and artistry can accentuate not the clinical or disparaging meaning of "critical" but its sense of compelling urgency and irreverent vitality."--Jacket

Rooms of our own by Susan Gubar( Book )

8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With a little help from Virginia Woolf, Susan Gubar contemplates startling transformations produced by the women's movement in recent decades. What advances have women made and what still needs to be done? Taking Woolf's classic A Room of One's Own as her guide, Gubar engages these questions by recounting one year in the life of an English professor." "A meditation on the teaching of literature and on the state of the humanities today, her chapters also provide a crash course on challenges and changes in feminist intellectual history over the past several decades: the influence of post-structuralism and of critical race, post-colonial, and cultural studies scholarship; the stakes of queer theory and the institutionalization of women's studies; the effects of globalism and bioengineering on conversations about gender, sex, and sexuality. Yet Rooms of Our Own eschews a scholarly approach. Instead, through narrative criticism it enlists a thoroughly contemporary cast of characters who tell us as much about the comedies and tragedies of campus life today as they do about the sometimes contentious but invariably liberating feminisms of our future. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
Poetry after Auschwitz : remembering what one never knew by Susan Gubar( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2006 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many contemporary writers - among them Anthony Hecht, Gerald Stern, Sylvia Plath, William Heyen, Michael Hamburger, Irena Klepfisz, Adrienne Rich, Jorie Graham, Jacqueline Osherow, and Anne Michaels - have grappled with personal and political, ethical and aesthetic consequences of the disaster. Through confessional verse and reinventions of the elegy, as well as documentary poems about photographs and trials, poets serve as proxy-witnesses of events that they did not experience firsthand. By speaking about or even as the dead, these men and women of letters elucidate what it means to cite, reconfigure, consume, or envy the traumatic memories of an earlier generation."--Jacket
A room of one's own by Virginia Woolf( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In A Room of One's Own, Virginia Woolf imagines that Shakespeare had a sister: a sister equal to Shakespeare in talent, equal in genius, but whose legacy is radically different. This imaginary woman never writes a word and dies by her own hand, her genius unexpressed. But had she been allowed to create, urges Woolf, she would have reached the same heights as her immoral sibling. In this classic essay, Virginia Woolf takes on the establishment, using her gift of language to dissect the world around her and give a voice to those who have none. Her message is simple: A woman must have an income and a room of her own in order to have the freedom to create. -- Back cover
