35 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 954 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It has long been recognized that women writers played a significant role in the rise of the novel. Women and the Rise of the Novel is the first systematic theoretical study of early modern women's fiction showing how and why it helped shape the novel's identity. While most studies of the origin of the novel begin with the eighteenth century, Donovan traces women's literary traditions from the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries, focusing on the early modern period as a starting point. She examines works in Italian, French, and Spanish as well as English, highlighting the contributions of various women writers from Christine de Pizan to Jane Austen."--Jacket

It covers the German ("Dorfgeschichten"--More or less "village histories"), French ("Contes" or "stories"), Irish, and Scottish traditions in detail, with a chapter devoted to each. In Germany, the tradition has b

Animals and women : feminist theoretical explorations by Carol J Adams( Book )
11 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Animals and Women is a collection of pioneering essays that explores the theoretical connections between feminism and animal defense. Offering a feminist perspective on the status of animals, this unique volume argues persuasively that both the social construction and oppressions of women are inextricably connected to the ways in which we comprehend and abuse other species.

This wide-ranging multidisciplinary anthology presents original material fr
