As a novelist, essayist, dramatist, and poet, Judith Sargent Murray candidly and often humorously asserted her opinions about the social and political conditions of women in late eighteenth-century America. As a committed feminist, she urged American women to enter a "new era in female history", yet published her own writings under a man's name in the hopes of more widely disseminating her ideas. This volume includes selections from The Gleaner, her major work, and other publications.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The anthology will prove useful for courses in literature, women's studies, and history....Scholars working on women's literature and history will find it a valuable starting point. Together with Mulford's edition of Stockton and Harris's own selection of Murray's writings, this collection promised to open exciting new avenues in the study of early American women writers. * William and Mary Quarterly *
