From the Publisher"Separate Spheres No More makes a significant contribution to recent revisionist work by feminist scholars who are questioning the idea of 'separate spheres' and 'the cult of true womanhood.' Like earlier feminist literary criticism, this collection represents a logical outgrowth of new cultural-historical scholarship, as it reveals 19th- and early 20th-century women exercising public power and effecting social change."—Leland S Person, The University of Alabama at Birmingham
"This collection enters vigorously into ongoing conversations about the shape and future of the American literary canon. Offering a compelling view of many neglected writers and new ways to read familiar ones, the collection will appeal to a wide readership. Innovative and interesting."
—Karen L. Kilcup, University of North Carolina-Greensboro
“Monika Elbert’s essay collection offers a powerful contribution to the ongoing reexamination of separate spheres in nineteenth- and earlytwentieth century American and in American literary criticism.” —South Atlantic Review
