Beschreibung:

During the last few centuries women writers have considerably widened and deepened the areas of human experience?with their sharp, feminine perception of life successfully transmuted into verbal artifact. The world body of literature in English would have been much poorer today but for the contribution of women writers. The new series?Studies in Women Writers in English?is a grateful acknowledgment of that contribution and public recognition of their voice. The twenty-three essays included in this fourth volume of the series cover a wide spectrum of women writers across space and time. The women writers discussed in this volume include five from Britain: Mary Shelley, Charlotte Brontë, George Eliot, Doris Lessing, and of course Virginia Woolf, the twentieth century stalwart of British novel, who has left her indelible mark on the art of fiction as well as on women writers and feminist thinkers of the subsequent decades. We also get a glimpse of the entire corpus of writers engaged with the ?feminist theatre? of America today, in addition to two African-American talents, i.e. Toni Morrison, the Nobel Laureate for literature in 1993, and Alice Walker, the eminent Black American woman writer, and a host of contemporary Indian writers, particularly with reference to their recent work, including Shashi Deshpande, Anita Desai, Shobhaa De, Manju Kapur, Nayantara Sahgal, as well as two émigré Indian writers?Bharati Mukherjee and Jhumpa Lahiri. Since most of the authors discussed in these articles are prescribed in the English syllabus in the universities of India, both the teachers and the students will find them extremely useful, and the general readers who are interested in literature in English and/or women writers will also find them intellectually stimulating.

Inhaltsangabe: During the last few centuries women writers have considerably widened and deepened the areas of human experience--with their sharp, feminine perception of life successfully transmuted into verbal artifact. The world body of literature in English would have been much poorer today but for the contribution of women writers. The new series--Studies in Women Writers in English--is a grateful acknowledgment of that contribution and public recognition of their voice. The twenty-three essays included in this fourth volume of the series cover a wide spectrum of women writers across space and time. The women writers discussed in this volume include five from Britain: Mary Shelley, Charlotte Brontë, George Eliot, Doris Lessing, and of course Virginia Woolf, the twentieth century stalwart of British novel, who has left her indelible mark on the art of fiction as well as on women writers and feminist thinkers of the subsequent decades. We also get a glimpse of the entire corpus of writers engaged with the 'feminist theatre' of America today, in addition to two African-American talents, i.e. Toni Morrison, the Nobel Laureate for literature in 1993, and Alice Walker, the eminent Black American woman writer, and a host of contemporary Indian writers, particularly with reference to their recent work, including Shashi Deshpande, Anita Desai, Shobhaa De, Manju Kapur, Nayantara Sahgal, as well as two émigré Indian writers--Bharati Mukherjee and Jhumpa Lahiri.
