Bibliog. Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary "This reference includes substantial alphabetically arranged entries on nearly 70 women writers whose works are widely read in English. While most of these women are from England and America, the volume also profiles Chilean, Brazilian, Indian, South African, Australian, French, and German authors. The writers selected are feminist in that their works have challenged traditional gender roles, explored female oppression, or critiqued patriarchal social structures. The encyclopedia also includes entries on some 20 related topics, such as "Domesticity," "Friendship," "Gothic," and "Spirituality."" "Each author entry includes biographical information, an extensive summary treatment of at least one of her works, a list of her other major works, cross-references to related entries, and a list of works for further reading. Entries are clearly written and are accessible to high school students and undergraduates. An interpretative summary in each entry distinguishes this encyclopedia from other volumes addressing feminist literature or literature by women. The volume closes with a list of works cited."--BOOK JACKET.
