Booknews
Okker (English, U. of Missouri) studies Hale's career as an editor of popular ladies' magazines, book reviewer, and fiction and poetry writer, and relates her contributions to debates about the status of women and the development of American literature, countering the perception that Hale's only accomplishment was the authorship of Mary Had a Little Lamb. She examines the role of women as editors, owners, and publishers of periodicals, and highlights the contributions of some 600 women editors of the period in the appendix. Annotation c.
