Writing women of the fin de siècle : authors of change
ed. by Adrienne E. Gavin ... [et al.]
"A collection of fifteen original essays which critically assess the changing culture of the late-Victorian period as represented by a range of women writers. Reflecting international expertise in the area, the volume includes essays by leading academics in the field as well as cutting-edge work by newer scholars and covers a range of critical perspectives. The volume is distinctive as the first to focus on women writers of the fin de siècle without limiting its scope to the feminist or New Woman. Its coverage is designed to be wide in scope but historically sharply defined, concentrating as it does on a period of significant social and political change and exploring both canonical and newly rediscovered texts."
