Like all the Norton Anthologies, this is an amazing collection of literature. It spands centuries (13th-20th), providing valuable insight into the life of the female author and her struggle for recognition. Startling attacks on male domination in the 17th century are included. These are powerful not purely by virtue of their existance but by their survival. Also included in the anthology are the following: speeches by Queen Elizabeth I, Salve Deus Rex Judaeorum by Aemilia Lanyer, poetry by Anne Bradstreet, The Disappointment and Oroonoko by Aphra Behn, Fantomina by Eliza Haywook, works by Phillis Wheatley, Vindication on the Rights of Woman by Mary Wollstonecraft, Love and Freindship (Spelling by Austen) by Jane Austen, Jane Eyre by Bronte, poems by Emily Dickinson, Life in the Iron Mills by Harding Davis, The Awakening by Kate Chopin, The Yellow Wallpaper by Prekins Gilman, and a PLETHORA of other female authors (Millay, Stein, Woolf, etc)!!!Was this review helpful?
