Front Cover
Johns Hopkins University Press, 1986 - Language Arts & Disciplines - 306 pages
"An unprecedented encounter between feminist criticism, reading-research and reader-response criticism... . I found Gender and Reading a valuable book to read as a feminist critic. Valuable because it asserts our rights, as women, to read; to read as women. Valuable because it begins a dialogue among so many varieties of criticism and theory."--Susan Squier, Women's Review of Books.
