The Oxford companion to women's writing in the United States ( Book )
8 editions published between 1994 and 2005 in English and held by 2,273 libraries worldwide
Here is a gold mine of information about women's writing, women's history, and women's concerns - 771 entries, ranging from short biographies to extensive essays. The Oxford Companion to Women's Writing in the United States provides a comprehensive, authoritative, and highly informative survey of women writers and their work as it also illuminates the issues that fired their imaginations. The volume boasts contributions by many of today's well-known cultural and literary critics, including Susan Faludi writing on backlash, Deborah Tannen on communication between the sexes, Jane Gallop on Lacanian psychoanalysis, Sidonie Smith on autobiography, Trudier Harris on passing, Nancy Armstrong on daughters, and Rachel Blau DuPlessis on poetry. There are over four hundred biographical profiles of not only important poets, novelists, and playwrights (including such contemporary figures as Wendy Wasserstein, Louise Erdrich, Anne Tyler, Amy Tan, Alice Walker, Annie Dillard, Joyce Carol Oates, Adrienne Rich, Toni Morrison, and Tama Janowitz), but also of women writers who have made important contributions in other fields - Margaret Mead, Betty Friedan, Rachel Carson, and Susan B. Anthony. Perhaps most important, there is extensive coverage of the many personal, cultural, and historical issues that have been explored by, and have influenced the lives and productivity of, women writers: race and racism, violence and sexual harassment, health, AIDS, the Civil War, the women's movement, and much more. There is also coverage of the publishing world (women's bookstores and presses), the art and practice of writing, and contemporary literary criticism (including deconstruction, black feminism, and lesbianliterary theory).

Reveling in the awareness that the best U.S. women's writing is, quite simply, some of the best in the world, editors Linda Wagner-Martin and Cathy N. Davidson have chosen selections spanning four centuries and reflecting the rich variety of American women's lives. The collection embraces the perspectives of age and youth, the traditional and the revolutionary, the public and the private. Here is Judith Sargent Murray's 1790 essay "On the Equality of the Sexes," journalist Martha Gellhorn's "Last Words on Vietnam, 1987," and Mary Gordon's homage to the ghosts of Ellis Island, "More Than Just a Shrine"; powerful short stories by Zora Neale Hurston, Edith Wharton, Cynthia Ozick, and Toni Morrison; letters from Abigail Adams, Sarah Moore Grimke, Emma Goldman, and Georgia O'Keeffe; Alice B. Toklas's recipe "Bass for Picasso," and erotic offerings from Anais Nin and Rita Mae Brown.
Telling women's lives : the new biography by Linda Wagner-Martin ( Book )
5 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 1,306 libraries worldwide
Placing herself in the avid reader's chair, Linda Wagner-Martin writes about women's biography from George Eliot and Virginia Woolf to Eleanor Roosevelt and Margaret Mead, and even to Cher and Elizabeth Taylor. Along the way, she looks at dozens of other life stories, probing at the differences between biographies of men and women, prevailing stereotypes about women's lives and roles, questions about what is public and private, and the hazy margins between autobiography, biography, and other genres. In quick-paced and wide-ranging discussions, she looks at issues of authorial stance (who controls the narrative? who chooses which story to tell?), voice (is this story told in the traditional objective tone? and if it is, what effect does that telling have on our reading?), and the politics of publishing (why aren't more books about women's lives published? and when they are, what happens to their advertising budgets?).

Sylvia Plath--a literary life by Linda Wagner-Martin ( Book )
17 editions published between 1999 and 2004 in English and held by 1,236 libraries worldwide
"Sylvia Plath: A Literary Life explores the way Plath made herself into a writer. This close analysis of Plath's reading and apprenticeship writing, both in fiction and poetry, sheds considerable light on her late work of the 1960s. Updated to further explore Plath's literary life, this study examines the aftermath of Plath's death on her work and her reputation as a writer, including the posthumous publication of her Collected Poems, edited by Ted Hughes, which won the Pulitizer Prize for Poetry in 1982. Plath biographies are also looked at along with Hughes's Birthday Letters together with a discussion and comparison of Hughes's and Plath's poems. A chronology maps out key events and publication both in Plath's lifetime and posthumously."--BOOK JACKET.
