MEDIA REVIEWS

"Since 1970, when feminist literary criticism and history began to appear, women's writing has entered an explosive new period of diversity and creativity. In the ambitious and capacious volume, co-editors Mary Eagleton and Emma Parker bring the history of British women's writing up to the present. In sixteen chapters, contributors review the astonishing range of work over the past five decades, put it in historical context, and explore ways to analyze it by genre, nationality, generation, and technology. The result is an indispensable tool for understanding how women's writing has developed and where its future may take it." Elaine Showalter, Professor Emerita of English, Avalon Foundation Professor of the Humanities, Princeton University, USA

"This is the only history and account of British women's writing from 1970 that manages to cover - brilliantly and succinctly in one volume - not only the entire range of literary genres and sub-genres of British women's writing of the period, but also non-literary genres such as digital media and journalism. The volume also addresses with verve and in depth, intellectual, political and institutional contexts that have shaped women's writing in the period. Covering writers from grande dames to contemporary rising stars, theatre to life writing, the essays are consistently accessible, lively, challenging and packed with expertly informed discussion. This book will certainly become the key companion text for anyone studying or interested in women's studies, women's writing, contemporary culture and writing." Patricia Waugh, Professor in the Department of English Studies, University of Warwick, UK
