Domesticity with a difference : the nonfiction of Catharine Beecher, Sarah J. Hale, Fanny Fern, and Margaret Fuller by Nicole Tonkovich( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 303 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of nonfiction written by four of nineteenth century America's first professional women writers investigates the paradoxes posed by the conflict of their texts with their lives. They were not homemakers yet in their works they prescribed ideal domesticity for the women of their day. They were not professional educators, yet they wrote authoritatively about educational theory and practice. They were not involved with organized political agitation for women's rights, yet their writings advanced thoughtful, radical revisions to existing social and political structures, particularly the heterosexual family

Elder Northfield's Home : or, Sacrificed on the Mormon Altar, a story of the Blighting Curse of Polygamy by Jennie Bartlett Switzer( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The practice of plural marriage, commonly known as polygamy, stirred intense controversy in postbellum America until 1890, when the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints first officially abolished the practice. Elder Northfield's Home, published by A. Jennie Bartlett in 1882, is both a staunchly antipolygamy novel and a call for the sentimental repatriation of polygamy's victims. Her book traces the fate of a virtuous and educated English immigrant woman, Marion Wescott, who marries a Mormon elder, Henry Northfield. Shocked when her husband violates his promise not to take a second wife, Marion attempts to flee during the night, toddler son in her arms, pulling her worldly possessions in his toy wagon. She returns to her husband, however, and the balance of the novel traces the effects of polygamy on Marion, Henry, and their children; their eventual rejection of plural marriage; and their return to a normal and healthy family structure. Nicole Tonkovich's critical introduction includes both historical contextualization and comments on selected primary documents, providing a broader look at the general public's reception of the practice of polygamy in the nineteenth century.
