Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'These authoritative essays give their once marginalized subjects a sense of stature, not just as women writers, but as authors well integrated into the common pantheon.' Times Literary Supplement

'This is a lucid and highly readable collection of essays... interesting and informative... offering instructive insights into changing constructions of gender and identity.' Modern Language Review

'... An intriguing liberal intellectual argument...' Morning Star

'Janet Todd's Gender, Art and Death is a refreshingly accessible book from a writer who is, as always, aware yet suspicious of shifts in theoretical fashion. ... excellent book.... Anyone interested in feminism, historicisim or literary history would be well advised to savour the entire work for themselves.' British Journal for Eighteenth-Century Studies
