The Vintage Book of American Women Writersis the first of its kind: a dazzling, monumental showcase of 350 years of poetry and fiction by American women. Inspired and informed by her groundbreaking historyA Jury of Her Peers,Elaine Showalterrs"s landmark anthology features the best work of writers ranging from Puritan poet Anne Bradstreet to contemporary stars like Annie Proulx and Jhumpa Lahiri. For centuries women have been marginalized and overlooked in American literary history and Showalterrs"s collectioncorrects this injustice, allowing us to see our famous women writers in their full literary context and to encounter scores of lesser-known and forgotten writers who fully deserve to be rediscovered and enjoyed by new generations of readers. Sure to fuel debate for years to come,The Vintage Book of American Women Writersoffers an epic overview of the canon in one readable, entertaining, and provocative volume.

In 1977, Showalter published A Literature of Their Own: British Women Novelists from Bronte to Lessing. It was one of the most influential works in feminist criticism, as it sought to establish a distinctive tradition for women writers. In later essays, Showalter helped to develop a clearly articulated feminist theory with two major branches: the special study of works by women and the study of all literature from a feminist perspective. In all of her recent writing, Showalter has sought to illuminate a "cultural model of female writing," distinguishable from male models and theories. Her role as editor bringing together key contemporary feminist criticism has been extremely influential on modern literary study.
