From the Publisher
"This is an exciting volume which presents many striking and original perspectives on Stoddard's work. The essays demonstrate how the arresting, puzzling, and seemingly eccentric texts of Elizabeth Stoddard yield significant insights on a wide expanse of issues, from incest, hunger, and domesticity, to race, Reconstruction, and American citizenship. . . . This book will, no doubt, be the critical work on Stoddard for years to come."
—Stacy Alaimo, author of Undomesticated Ground: Recasting Nature as Feminist Space
"Stoddard is well worth embedding in readings of 19th-century American culture. Highly recommended. American literature collections serving readers at all levels."
