More About This Textbook


This final volume in Sandra M. Gilbert and Susan Gubar's landmark trilogy argues that twentieth-century women of letters-from Virginia Woolfe and Marianne Moore to Sylvia Plath and Toni Morrison to Margaret Atwood and Zora Neale Hurston and H.D.-have found themselves on a confusing cultural front and have responded by dispatching "missives" on the profound changes in the roles and rules that govern sexuality.

In this three-volume landmark work, the authors of the classic The Madwoman in the Attic provide an overview of modern literature in England and America, bringing feminist theory to bear on writings by men as well as women. Illustrated.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In their final volume of the three-part No Man's Land (LJ 11/1/87 and LJ 3/1/89, respectively), feminist literary scholars Gilbert and Gubar expand the argument that women writers throughout the 20th century have found themselves within a confusing culture of sexual oppression, liberation, and transformation, full of arbitrariness and contradictions. They explore the impact of the Harlem Renaissance, World War II, and other events on feminism and women's writing. The authors continue to examine the writing and lives of modernist writers (e.g., Virginia Woolf, H.D., Zora Neale Hurston, and Nella Larsen), expanding to post-World War II writers (Carson McCullers, Doris Lessing, and Sylvia Plath). This enlightened and enlightening literary theory and history is an important purchase for women's studies, gender studies, and literary studies collections.-Jeris Cassel, Rutgers Univ. Libs., New Brunswick, N.J.
