One of the preeminent authors of the early twentieth century, Susan Glaspell (1876-1948) produced fourteen ground-breaking plays, nine novels, and more than fifty short stories. Her work was popular and critically acclaimed during her lifetime, with her novels appearing on best-seller lists and her stories published in major magazines and in The Best American Short Stories. Many of her short works display her remarkable abilities as a humorist, satirizing cultural conventions and the narrowness of small-town life. And yet they also evoke serious questions - relevant as much today as durin

A cofounder of the Provincetown Players - the group that acted as midwife to the American theatre - Susan Glaspell (1876-1948) can also lay claim to be a major figure in her own right. Her early plays were in many respects as challenging and original as those with which O'Neill made his debut. Her concern with language as subject, with character as an expression of social role, with plot as a mechanism that may ensnare rather than locate the self, mode her very much a modern. In Trifles (1916) she developed a feminist critique of social role. In The Outside (1917) she staged a debate between the life force and a perverse celebration of death. In both plays silence becomes an eloquent expression of meaning. The Verge (1921) is an experimental work of considerable proportions, more daring in many ways than anything attempted by O'Neill. Though Inheritors (1921) is far more conventional it touched a contemporary nerve, questioning the nature and reality of American pieties. Long known only for a single play, Susan Glaspell now emerges as a significant figure in the history of American drama, a woman of genuine creative daring

The glory of the conquered : the story of a great love by Susan Glaspell( Book )

23 editions published between 1909 and 2013 in English and Turkish and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in 1909, Susan Glaspell's first novel brims with the optimism of the Progressive Era. The "great love" mentioned in the novel's subtitle refers not only to the marriage of the central characters, Ernestine Stanley and Dr. Karl Hubers, but also, on the level of allegory, to a marriage of art and science: Ernestine is a promising young painter, one of her pictures having received acclaim when exhibited in a Paris salon, while Karl is a brilliant medical researcher on the faculty of the University of Chicago; he is expected to cure cancer

In the shadow of Agatha Christie : classic crime fiction by forgotten female writers : 1850-1917 by Leslie S Klinger( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new anthology brings the female crime writers who inspired Agatha Christie out of her shadow and back into the spotlight they deserve. The success of writers like Anna Katherine Green in America; L.T. Meade, C.L. Pirkis, the Baroness Orczy, and Elizabeth Corbett in England; and Mary Fortune in Australia opened doors for the women authors who followed them. While Agatha Christie may still reign supreme, the genre would be much poorer without the bold, fearless work of her predecessors
