Inscribing the Daily: Critical Essays on Women's Diaries
Suzanne L. Bunkers, Cynthia Anne Huff
Univ of Massachusetts Press, 1996 - Literary Criticism - 296 pages
These fifteen essays explore the rich texture of women's diaries written in America and Europe over the past two centuries. The authors use a variety of critical methodologies to examine the diary as a text, as a form of women's self-inscription, as a window to the diarists' historical and contemporary lives, and as a theoretical tool that allows us to question longstanding assumptions.
