Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Beulah Benton, the protagonist of this reissued novel of the antebellum South, is plucky, feminist, intellectual--but given to convoluted philosophical musings and, ultimately, acquiescent to women's traditional roles. In the formal, sometimes overwrought language of the period, Evans takes the orphaned Beulah from her trouble-ridden childhood through her stormy young womanhood. Despite the many poignant events--including the death of Beulah's young sister and the social ostracism she faces as an orphan--Evans's energetic and direct style achieves sincerity of feeling more often than melodrama. Beulah's lot begins to improve when Guy Hartwell, the doctor who tends her in a serious illness, becomes her guardian. Although she vows to remain unmarried and earn her living as an author and teacher, Beulah ultimately realizes what the reader has known for some time--that Guy is in love with her and she with him. Her transition from independent female to little woman is strained and abrupt, yet, for its time, the novel is remarkable for the seriousness with which it takes women's intellectual pursuits and the dignity it gives to the single life. Fox-Genovese wrote Within the Plantation Household. (Aug.)
A reprint of the original 1982 edition, with a new introduction by the (still redbaiting) author. Blames the Stalinist and Popular Front intellectuals for unspecified crimes with unspecified consequences, but mainly just kicks the dying dog. (RC) Evans wrote eight novels; Beulah, published in 1859, was the second, and brought her both commercial and critical success. It concerns a Southern woman's struggles with skepticism and faith as she seeks independence. Edited and with an introduction setting the context, the novel is here made available to a modern audience. Paper edition (unseen), $16.95. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
