"Women's Worlds," a new anthology of women's writing, makes available a broad range of women's voices from across time, across classes, and across the globe in a slimmer, more flexible, and more affordable format. This new anthology includes selections from the 14th through the 21st centuries, from the first text by a woman published in English (Julian of Norwich's "Revelation of Divine Love)" to selections by contemporary writers like Barbara Kingsolver, Alison Bechdel, and Zadie Smith. The selections are drawn from Britain and North America, but also from Africa, Asia, Oceania, the Middle East, and the Caribbean--wherever English is spoken. While classics of fiction, poetry, and drama are provided, the text also includes essays, song lyrics, letters, diary entries--even excerpts from domestic handbooks and a graphic memoir--to represent the full range of women's voices. And Cultural Coordinates essays provide insights into customs and costumes from purdah to life before the Pill. To expand the choice of novels instructor's wish to assign, McGraw-Hill also offers works from Library of Women's Literature at a discount.
