Front Cover
Prentice-Hall, 1988 - Literary Criticism - 472 pages
0 Reviews
The 31 short stories, 49 poems, 2 novel excerpts, and 4 plays featured in this unique collection reaffirm the central place of women in the development of the genres of fiction, poetry, and drama. Prefaced by thought-provoking introductory comments, these works are grouped according to the life stages of women--childhood, adolescence, adulthood, old age, and death. As a result, large themes and unexpected concordances become apparent across the widely ranging times, places, cultures, and lifestyles of the women portrayed.
