  • #MeToo
    • Abstract: With the advent of the #MeToo movement, I have been reflecting on my good fortune to have encountered only some of the good men who populate our profession. I have had male mentors my entire career, wonderful men who have supported me academically and professionally and who I do not believe would ever sexualize, demean, or harass their students. This is less a function of my people skills or my professionalism than of sheer luck. Too many of us live with the deeply ingrained sexist belief that if we present ourselves a certain way, speak a certain way, behave a certain way, we will insulate ourselves from sexual advances in the workplace. Too many of us, even those of us who fight victim-blaming attitudes and rape ... Read More

  • Wollstonecraft's Widow: Understanding the Dead Husband's Gaze
    • Abstract: In A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), when Mary Wollstonecraft wants to strike an anxious chord in her readers' hearts, she describes the fate of an uneducated widow:She either falls an easy prey to some mean fortune-hunter, who defrauds her children of their paternal inheritance, and renders her miserable; or becomes the victim of discontent and blind indulgence. Unable to educate her sons, or impress them with respect … she pines under the anguish of unavailing impotent regret. The serpent's tooth enters into her very soul, and the vices of licentious youth bring her with sorrow, if not with poverty also, to the grave.1Wollstonecraft hopes to influence male readers—the "men of understanding" ...

  • Species Thinking: Animals, Women, and Literary Tropes in Mary
           Wollstonecraft's A Vindication of the Rights of Woman
    • Abstract: Mary Wollstonecraft's famous call for "a revolution in female manners," A Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), charts women's vexed relationship to the conceptual categories of the human and the animal in eighteenth-century writing.1 In the introduction, Wollstonecraft presents her political treatise as a response to contemporary didactic literature, arguing that in this body of writing, "men of genius" treat women "as a kind of subordinate beings, and not as a part of the human species" (p. 74). She elaborates on this claim throughout the treatise, identifying the construction of sexual characteristics such as "female manners" and the "female soul"—the notion that a woman's soul is merely sentient while a ...

  • History Repeating: Mothers, Daughters, and Incest in Mary Robinson's
           Vancenza and The False Friend
    • Abstract: Mary Robinson's first novel, Vancenza; or, The Dangers of Credulity (1792), and her penultimate novel, The False Friend (1799), although generically and formally quite different, contain rather startling plot similarities. Both novels center on orphaned daughters, who appear fated to replicate the narratives of their fallen mothers. This process of replication involves the daughters unknowingly developing incestuous desires: Vancenza's Elvira for her brother and The False Friend's Gertrude St. Leger for her father. So damaging are their mothers' sexual transgressions that their consequences reverberate into a second generation, causing the daughters to fall in love with inappropriate men and die of grief when their ...

  • "Imperfect Notices": The 1820 Continental Journal of Mary Wordsworth

  • Antebellum Womanhood and Taming Her "Wild Way": Pet Keeping, Mourning, and
           Social Indoctrination in Grace Greenwood's History of My Pets
    • Abstract: In the dedication to History of My Pets (1851), Grace Greenwood makes a simple promise to her readers that the following collection of stories will depict her upbringing alongside a "whole menagerie" of pets.1 Greenwood attests that the history she tells is a true, though not complete, account of her oftentimes tragic experiences caring for an assortment of cats, dogs, fowl, and livestock. The tales, she explains, will show how her interactions with these "odd sort of pets" influenced the identity she claims in adulthood (p. iii). She writes,I have not grown up into a fine lady, or a great scholar; but I have, as you know, good health and good spirits, which I think come from the wild way I lived as a child. I ... Read More

  • "The dance of the intelligence"': Dancing Bodies in Mina Loy
    • Abstract: Mina Loy's engagement with the visual and plastic arts has been well documented in critical accounts of her writing and other activities as a modernist woman. Loy lived in some of the most vibrant locations of modernist endeavor—Florence, Berlin, New York, and Paris—and mingled with many of modernism's key figures—Ezra Pound, Gertrude Stein, James Joyce, and Marcel Duchamp. She was an artist and designer, so a visual perspective informed her poetry and prose; Loy's writing abounds with attempts to render into words the experience of viewing sculptures, paintings, or other art objects. As well as examining this use of ekphrasis, several critics have considered the ties between Loy's poetry and music, but the ... Read More

  • Responding to Patriarchy in India: Resistance and Complicity in Samina
           Ali's Madras on Rainy Days and Anita Desai's Fasting, Feasting
    • Abstract: Historically, English has been the language of the elite in India. Beginning in 1835, the British colonial government enacted a deliberate strategy of providing a Western-style education with English as the language of instruction for elite Indian males who were being groomed to assist in the administration of the colony. The top achievers among them were sent to Oxford or Cambridge, where they were inevitably influenced by Western ideas, which spread gradually (and unevenly) among this elite class throughout India. The effect of these cultural developments on the women in their families was uneven, too. Partha Chatterjee has written about the ways in which women during the nationalist movement for Indian ...

  • Low-Spoon Teaching: Labor, Gender, and Self-Accommodation in Academia
    • Abstract: As professors, we too have disabilities. Our graduate degrees do not fix our dyslexia or cure our lupus or protect our loved ones from harm. Something happens, however, in the gap between our students and ourselves where understanding, empathy, and accommodation evaporate in the face of our own self-expectations. Self-accommodation is an intensely important and woefully overlooked academic practice, especially for women. Because educating is inherently replete with emotional labor, educators must self-accommodate for illness, disability, and fatigue in order to be maximally effective. When we are not taking care of ourselves, we are not presenting our best selves to our students. Self-accommodation is not a simple ... Read More

  • Elizabeth Bishop's Theater of the Inevitable
    • Abstract: "Writing poetry is an unnatural act," Elizabeth Bishop observed in a set of notes dating from the late 1950s or early 1960s, "it takes great skill to make it seem natural. Most of the poet's energies are really directed towards this goal: to convince himself (perhaps, with luck, eventually some readers) that what he's up to and what he's saying is really an inevitable, only natural way of behaving under the circumstances."1 That Bishop, by mid-career, aimed to make her poems seem "natural" and "inevitable" is not surprising to those familiar with her craft. But two recent books, Bethany Hicok's Elizabeth Bishop's Brazil and Vidyan Ravinthiran's Elizabeth Bishop's Prosaic, enhance our understanding of the cultural ... Read More

  • Women's Poetry and Poetics in Late Imperial China: A Dialogic Engagement
           by Haihong Yang (review)
    • Abstract: In recent years, an increasing number of scholars have paid critical attention to women's literature from late imperial China, and Haihong Yang's Women's Poetry and Poetics in Late Imperial China: A Dialogic Engagement makes a fruitful endeavor to enrich the existing scholarship. As Yang explains in the introduction, this book examines "the interactions between women's poetic creations and the existing discourses in the literati tradition and stud[ies] how these interactions generate innovative self-reinscription and renovations in poetic forms and aesthetics" (p. xii). Yang describes such interactions as a "dialogic approach," aiming to show women poets' "negotiations with the tradition of and their efforts to ... Read More

  • Sin and Salvation in Early Modern France: Three Women's Stories by
           Marguerite d'Auge, Renée Burlamacchi (review)
    • Abstract: Sin and Salvation in Early Modern France: Three Women's Stories, translated by Nicholas van Handel and Colette H. Winn, is a welcome addition to The Other Voice in Early Modern Europe series, offering vivid glimpses of the lives of three very different women of the merchant and professional classes in early modern France. While sin and salvation are indeed important themes, the texts are particularly valuable for the insights they offer into early modern families and the roles of women therein.Renée Burlamacchi's Memoirs Concerning Her Father's Family (1623) and Jeanne du Laurens's The Genealogy of the du Laurens (1631) are nicely matched accounts by proud daughters of their birth families. Burlamacchi's family ... Read More

  • Women's Prophetic Writings in Seventeenth-Century Britain by Carme Font
           (review)
    • Abstract: Carme Font joins a cohort of scholars who have discovered creativity, intellect, and beauty in the prophetic discourse of seventeenth-century women. Despite the bodily suffering and self-abnegating authorial strategies often associated with this genre, Font's study helps to celebrate the highly personalized and empowering nature of early modern prophecy. In Women's Prophetic Writings in Seventeenth-Century Britain, Font illuminates the ways in which women became leaders of communities and activists for political and social change through their prophetic writing.Font demonstrates the empowering and personalized nature of seventeenth-century prophecy through the example of the Baptist Anne Wentworth (1629/30-1693'). ...

  • Questioning Nature: British Women's Scientific Writing and Literary
           Originality, 1750-1830 by Melissa Bailes (review)
    • Abstract: Melissa Bailes's much-needed study of the originality of Romantic women's scientific verse, Questioning Nature: British Women's Scientific Writing and Literary Originality, 1750-1830, fills a gap in existing scholarship on the era, women's writing of the time, and the dynamic hybridity of literary-scientific productions. Beginning with a tightly argued introduction, which establishes dominant male discourses and histories as well as often-overlooked counternarratives emphasizing the role of men and women alike in constructing a complicated and innovative intertextual culture, Bailes clearly articulates the sociological and literary implications of naturalists' methods and conclusions during the Romantic era.

  • Byronic Heroes in Nineteenth-Century Women's Writing and Screen Adaptation
           by Sarah Wootton (review)
    • Abstract: The Byronic hero is a notoriously slippery character. In Byronic Heroes in Nineteenth-Century Women's Writing and Screen Adaptation, Sara Wootton writes that the Byronic hero "is both inescapable in popular culture and inexplicable, a known commodity and unknowable. … instantly recognizable, endlessly reinterpreted, and enduringly elusive" (p. 12). Nineteenth-century women writers, Wootton argues, played an important role in the literary afterlife of this figure, and her book aims to reinsert their contributions into the history of the Byronic hero and of Byron himself.Wootton chooses to focus on women writers who might not be immediately associated with Byron, thus the absence of the Brontës from her study. ...

           (review)
    • Abstract: Since at least the 1970s, literary scholars have engaged in an ongoing project of recovery that has placed neglected women writers within their historical contexts in order to restore their cultural value and, in some cases, bring them into the literary canon. The nineteenth century has been a particularly vital period for this work as scholars of both British and American literature such as Nina Baym, Sandra Gilbert, Susan Gubar, Elaine Showalter, and Jane Tomkins have demonstrated.

    • Abstract: Second-wave feminist literary criticism took its fierce and energetic start in the 1970s from nineteenth-century fiction by women authors, and generations of scholars have continued to build on this rich legacy. Central to feminist criticism's vision of gendered representation was the figure of the domestic, middle-class white woman, exemplified by Jane Eyre—as Virginia Woolf saw her—interrupting Charlotte Brontë's novel by expressing her author's anger about domestic women's limited options. Did the regime of separate spheres entrap such women in the home, wasting their talents and inducing rage and madness' Although feminist critical focus was initially on the singular individual—coinciding with the rise of ...

  • Off to the Pictures: Cinema-Going, Women's Writing and Movie Culture in

    • Abstract: Recent explorations into the relationship between cinema and literature in the interwar period such as Laura Marcus's The Tenth Muse: Writing about Cinema in the Modernist Period (2008) and David Trotter's Literature in the First Media Age: Britain Between the Wars (2013) have frequently returned to the question of gender inevitably raised by the visibility of women as film goers, stars, and critics in the 1920s and 1930s. Lisa Stead's Off to the Pictures: Cinema-Going, Women's Writing and Movie Culture in Interwar Britain, however, is the first monograph solely devoted to the importance of what she calls women's "film fictions" in this period (p. 197). Off to the Pictures opens a rich written archive that includes ... Read More

  • The Subversive Art of Zelda Fitzgerald by Deborah Pike (review)
    • Abstract: After reading Zelda Fitzgerald's Save Me the Waltz (1932), Malcolm Cowley wrote in a letter to Zelda's husband dated 22 May 1933 expressing his feeling that she had "a different story to tell" than her contemporaries; "she has something there that nobody got into words before."1 Zelda's one-of-a kind narratives are the focus of Deborah Pike's The Subversive Art of Zelda Fitzgerald. Taking Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari's theory of minor literature as her through line and psychoanalytical theorists for the critical framing of her position, Pike offers a biocritical reading of Zelda's art—in the many forms it took—to establish her place in literary modernism. In this first book-length study of Zelda's oeuvre, the ... Read More

In her meticulous readings of Morrison's novels from Beloved (1987) to God Help the Child (2015), Wyatt weaves multiple areas of theory—psychoanalysis, rhetoric, and call-and-response—to tease out the differences as well as the progressions in Morrison's conceptions of love. Starting with the research question, "What is the effect on narrative structure if it is love, not desire, that moves narrative forward—or, perhaps, imposes stasis and brings narrative momentum to a halt' Or pushes the parameters of narrative convention to reflect heretofore ...

  • The Fiction of Valerie Martin: An Introduction by Veronica Makowsky

    • Abstract: In The Fiction of Valerie Martin: An Introduction, Veronica Makowsky uses the apt metaphor of Henry James's "figure in the carpet" for teasing out the themes and designs that characterize Valerie Martin's many and various works of fiction.1 What her works have in common is an overarching theme: "the human imagination and its varied uses for good or ill: to create, to palliate, to deny, to evade, to destroy" (p. 22). This theme spans Martin's accomplishments in the genres of Southern literature, postmoernism, and gothic literature, a diversity that is partly why, as Makowsky points out, this prolific and gifted novelist is not better known. She is hard to categorize. Unlike her friend and fellow novelist Margaret ... Read More

Sánchez-Blake and Kanost argue that the dynamics of reason and unreason have occupied the attention of twentieth-century scholars in Europe and North America but have received little attention in Latin America. The authors underscore the connection between literature and the violent history of Latin America in the late twentieth century; brutal military dictatorships and civil wars ignited—especially in women ...
