Summary
"When first published in 1977, Elaine Showalter's 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 in England. A generation of students, scholars, readers, and writers have since benefited from the twenty years of rediscovery and appreciation that A Literature of Their Own instigated." "This revised and expanded edition contains a new introductory chapter surveying the book's reception as well as a new postscript chapter celebrating the legacy of feminism and feminist criticism in the efflorescence of contemporary British fiction by women."--Jacket
