Gender play in Mark Twain : cross-dressing and transgression by Linda A Morris( Book )

"Explores Mark Twain's use of cross-dressing across his career by exposing the cast of his characters who masqueraded as members of the opposite sex or who otherwise defied gender expectations. Morris grounds her study in an understanding of the era's theatrical cross-dressing and changing mores, and events in the Clemens household"--Provided by publisher
Women's humor in the age of gentility : the life and works of Frances Miriam Whitcher by Linda A Morris( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cloaked in anonymity, Frances Miriam Whitcher wrote brilliant social satire in the mid-1800s, exposing hypocrisy and pretentiousness in village society throughout the Northeast. This new book demonstrates that her sardonic, antisentimental wit represents an entirely different strain in women's writing of the time, earning her an important role in the emergence of a distinctive tradition of women's humor in America."--BOOK JACKET. "Whitcher was the first American woman to write a highly popular series of humorous sketches in the tradition of the Yankee yarn-spinner. Whitcher's sketches were featured in Neal's Saturday Gazette and Godey's Lady's Book. Her collection of sketches, published posthumously as The Widow Bedott Papers, earned best-seller status from the date of its publication in 1855 until the end of the 1880s, when "The Widow Bedott" was played on the New York stage by Neil Burgess."--BOOK JACKET. "Although widely read, much admired, and very influential in her own era, Whitcher has until recently been virtually forgotten in ours. Morris's study should help to rescue her writings and perhaps earn for Whitcher a new readership."--BOOK JACKET
