Analyzing the different voice: feminist psychological theory and literary texts
These essays apply influential, pathbreaking psychological studies about women's lives to literature. In their analyses of fictional portraits, contributors both challenge and confirm psychological theories about female identity, about connection/separation as developmental catalysts, and about the impact of gender on voice, moral decision-making, and epistemology in relation to classical and contemporary literary texts, written by both women and men.
