  1. Caveat lector: do NOT buy this book I began reading this book with great anticipation, looking forward to a pleasant evening learning more about a sadly-neglected subject; women’s writing in 19th century America. 

  2. Brilliant Feminist Overview This is a brilliant intervention in the study of American literature written by one of the smartest, women academics out there. Wonderful in its contextualization of 19th-century American women writers, this book is well-organized, comprehensive and lively. Please don’t be daunted by fact-checker wannabes. This is great stuff, for both students and those who would like a women writers compendium on hand.
