Most widely held works by Elaine Showalter
A literature of their own : British women novelists from Brontë to Lessing by Elaine Showalter( Book )

99 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and Italian and held by 3,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A LITERATURE OF THEIR OWN quickly set the stage for the creative explosion of feminist literary studies that transformed the field in the 1980s. Launching a major new area for literary investigation, the book uncovered the long but neglected tradition of women writers and the development of their fiction from the 1800s onwards. It includes assessments of famous writers such as the Brontës, George Eliot, Virginia Woolf, Margaret Drabble and Doris Lessing, but also presents critical appraisals of Mary Braddon, Rhoda Broughton and Sarah Grand --- to name but a few of those prolific and successful Victorian novelists - --once household names, now largely forgotten
A jury of her peers : American women writers from Anne Bradstreet to Annie Proulx by Elaine Showalter( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 2,451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is a history of American women writers from 1650-2000. In this narrative spanning more than 400 years and introducing more than 250 female writers, both famous and little known, the author shows how these writers were connected to one another and to their times. The author believes that it is important to integrate the contributions of women into the American literary heritage, making the case for the unfairly overlooked and putting the overrated in their place. In this work she gives readers the opportunity to rediscover long-lost great writers and to return to familiar titles with deeper appreciation

"This Guide aims to consolidate and epitomise the re-reading of women's writing that has gone on in the last twenty-five years. This is an opportunity for stock-taking - a timely project, when so much writing has been rediscovered, reclaimed and republished." "There are entries on writers, on individual texts, and on general terms, genres and movements, all printed in a single alphabetical sequence. The earliest written documents in medieval English (the visionary writings of Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe) are covered in an historical - and geographical - sweep that takes us up to the present day." "The book reflects the spread of literacy, the history of colonisation and the development of post-colonial cultures using and changing the English language. The entries are written by contributors from all the countries covered."--Jacket

Faculty towers : the academic novel and its discontents by Elaine Showalter( Book )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Faculty Towers, Showalter takes a personal look at the ways novels about the academy have charted changes in the university and society since 1950. With her readings of C.P. Snow's idealized world of Cambridge dons or of the globe-trotting antics of David Lodge's Morris Zapp, of the sleuthing Kate Fansler in Amanda Cross's best-selling mystery series or of the recent spate of bitter novels in which narratives of sexual harassment seem to serve as fables of power, anger, and desire, Showalter holds a mirror up to the world she has inhabited over the course of a distinguished and often controversial career."--Jacket
