Booknews
An analysis of the work of four 19th-century women writers. Tonkovich (literature, U. of Calif., San Diego) examines the way each woman deals with issues of race, class, domesticity, educational theory, social and political structures, and the heterosexual family. The biographical circumstances of each woman are also discussed; two of them, by Tonkovich's account, were fatherless daughters and two were their father's "best boy." Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
