About the Author

ANNIS PRATT taught for many years at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. She is an archetypal critic who started her career writing about Dylan Thomas's use of Welsh religion and myth and went on to examine the archetypes women novelists have used for the last three centuries in her now-classic Archetypal Patterns in Women's Fiction.
