Experimental lives : women and literature, 1900-1945 by Mary Loeffelholz( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 707 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women's experience in the first half of the twentieth century was shaped by changes in their legal status, education, employment, and by their struggle for a redefinition of themselves and their place in society. Rejecting the literary and cultural assumptions of the Victorian and Edwardian periods, women novelists, poets, and playwrights of the modernist period used such innovations as shifting narrators, unconventional plots, imagism and symbolism, and the interior monologue to challenge literary and social traditions. Women of this experimental literary period--diverse writers ranging from Amy Lowell and Hilda Doolittle to Virginia Woolf and Zora Neale Hurston--explored such themes as the nature of the self and of consciousness, the role of women and of the artist, and political, social, and personal oppression." "In Experimental Lives Mary Loeffelholz examines the contributions of a broad range of women writers, providing a much-needed revision of the modernist canon and demonstrating the variety and originality of women's writing in this period. In such chapters as "The Women of Imagism," "British Women Novelists," and "Expatriates and Experimentalists," Loeffelholz discusses--by genre and theme--the different streams within the modernist movement, and analyzes the relationships between them. The study challenges traditional, male-oriented interpretations of the modernist period and comments in current criticism, from Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar's work to that of Toril Moi and Cary Nelson. Highlighting the volume is a foreword by noted feminist scholar Josephine Donovan. Experimental Lives is a stimulating, in-depth, and comprehensive critical guide that restores women's experience and writing to their rightful place in our understanding of this enormously creative and influential literary period."--Jacket

With the transformation and expansion of the nineteenth-century American literary canon in the past two decades, the work of the era's American women poets has come to be widely anthologized.

The value of Emily Dickinson by Mary Loeffelholz( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Value of Emily Dickinson is the first compact introduction to Dickinson to focus primarily on her poems and why they have held and continue to hold such significance for readers. It addresses the question of literary value in light of current controversies dividing scholars, including those surrounding the critical issue of whether her writings are best appreciated as visual works of manuscript art or as rhymed and metered poems intended for the inner ear. Mary Loeffelholz deftly incorporates Dickinson's distinctive biography and her historical, religious, and cultural contexts into close readings, tracing the evolution of Dickinson's style. This volume - which considers not only the complex history of Dickinson's poems in print, but also their future in digital formats - will be an invaluable resource for undergraduate and graduate students seeking to better understand the importance of this seminal American poet"
