A handbook of literary feminisms by Shari Benstock( Book )

10 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Handbook of Literary Feminisms brings together for the first time two distinct threads of literary feminism: literary history and feminist criticism and theory. The first section of the book offers a history of women's contributions to Anglo-American literature over the past 500 years. It charts the social, cultural, and historical conditions that both shaped women's writing and prevented it from being recognized or valued by literary history. The second section provides an explanation and analysis of trends in feminist criticism and theory, focusing on how feminist approaches to women's texts have incorporated theoretical investigations of sexuality, subjectivity, and ideology."
