The essays in Writing American Women offer a sustained investigation
of what writing has meant for North American
women authors from the earliest captivity narratives to Kym
Ragusa’s acclaimed recent memoir, The Skin Between Us
(2006). By focusing on women rather than the more porous
category of gender, contributors offer a meaningful survey of
the issues that have shaped women’s writing in America.
Some of the questions that emerge with particular force
include the fraught relationship of women authors to the institutions
of literary production, their complex geographical
and cultural self-definition, and the special place of autobiography
in their work. Combining historical, literary, institutional,
and theoretical considerations, this volume brings
into focus the rich nuances and heterogeneity of contemporary
American studies as well as the vital contributions of
women writers to American literature.
Writers discussed in this book include Mary Rowlandson,
Lucy Larcom, Amy Lowell, Louisa May Alcott, Edith Wharton,
Kay Boyle, Nancy Huston and Lois-Ann Yamanaka.
