Summary
Masterpieces of Women's Literature features critical summaries and descriptions of the greatest works of literature by women authors. All the important facts and dates of authorship, along with analyses of characters, settings, themes, and plots, are included for works in every genre, including autobiographies, novels, poetry, plays, essays, and short stories. Containing works by women of all eras and backgrounds, this book covers everything from Emily Bronte's Wuthering Heights to Germaine Greer's The Female Eunuch, from Harriet Beecher Stowe's Uncle Tom's Cabin to Alice Walker's The Color Purple, as well as works by many lesser-known writers. The most in-depth reference of its kind, Masterpieces of Women's Literature is an indispensable guide for students and anyone interested in women's voices, throughout history as well as today
