Summary
  • "In Writing out of Place, Judith Fetterley and Marjorie Pryse explore a countertradition of nineteenth-century writing previously ignored by American literary history. The writers who comprise this tradition challenged the definition of the nation and of literature that emerged after the Civil War."
  • "In a series of sketches, regionalist writers such as Alice Cary, Mary E. Wilkins Freeman, Sarah Orne Jewett, Grace King, Alice Dunbar-Nelson, Sui Sin Far, and Mary Austin critique the approach to regional subjects characteristic of local color and present narrators who serve as cultural interpreters for persons often considered "out of place" by urban readers. In their approach to these writers, Fetterley and Pryse offer contemporary readers an alternative vantage point from which to consider questions of regions and regionalism in the global economy of our own time."--Jacket
