From the PublisherWhat this book provides, then, is a 'portrait of three faces of feminism, three phases of poetic form,' as well as an analysis of the complex relationship of women to the Puritan tradition that has shaped this country's cultural identity. . . . An American Triptych insightfully illustrates how three American female poets made themselves, in Dickinson's phrase, 'At Home—in Paradise.'
—Susan Gubar, New York Times Book Review
Wendy Martin brings together the insights of recent feminist criticism with broad historical learning and a fine aesthetic sensibility; and she does so in a lucid, engaging way. This careful study of three important American women poets is a contribution to the entire field of American literature and cultural studies.
