The Second edition of this highly successful anthology provides a wide-ranging survey of contemporary feminist critical theory and practice. Offering vital readings from today's leading theorists, this new, comprehensive volume examines the implications of the patriarchal nature of the literary canon and the relative exclusion of women from literary history. The essays encourage dialogue on literary history, women's language, and the needs of feminism often enlisting the reader in critical debate. The volume is fully annotated and provides a glossary of unfamiliar terms, new suggestions for further reading and an updated introduction, mapping the field of current feminist theory.
