Here for the first time in one volume is the best of what has been thought and said by women writers and scholars about writing itself. Ranging over six centuries, from Christine de Pizan to Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, this Reader brings unprecedented historical perspective to the tradition of writing about female literary creativity. Part 1, "Women Writers: On Writing," includes early meditations on women and writing by such authors as Cavendish, Finch, and Austen, as well as more recent texts by writers that include Lorde, Atwood, and Anzaldua. Part 2, "Theory: On Gender and Culture," explores current debates on such topics as literary representations of women, the psychosexual dynamics of female creativity, the relationships between gender and genre, the role of women artists as critics, and the impact of black, Chicano, Asian, and lesbian thinkers on conceptualizations of women's literary accomplishments. Part 3, "Practice: Representative Readings and Analyses," offers six casebooks on major authors or topics in women's literary history. Section introductions, biographical sketches, and suggested further readings round out this invaluable sourcebook.

Sandra M. Gilbert's most recent poetry collection is "Blood Pressure". She teaches at the University of California, Davis.

Susan Gubar, Distinguished Professor of English at Indiana University, has coauthored and coedited several books with Sandra M. Gilbert, including The Madwoman in the Attic;its three-volume sequel, No Man's Land: The Place of the Woman Writer in the Twentieth Century;the newly revised Norton Anthology of Literature by Women;and their spoof, Masterpiece Theatre: An Academic Melodrama.Her most recent book is Racechanges: White Skin, Black Face in American Culture.
