    One thought on “The Norton Anthology of Literature by Women”

    1. Everybody should own a copy of this. It's abso-frikkin-lutely brilliant. Some of the authors/poets included:Sylvia PlathCharlotte Perkins GilmanThe Bronte SistersJane AustenAlice WalkerMargaret AtwoodGwendolyn BrooksEmily DickinsonHilda DoolittleAnne FinchMarianne MooreDorothy ParkerAnne SextonSojourner TruthLouisa May AlcottKate ChopinEdith WhartonVirginia WoolfKatherine MansfieldShirley JacksonAngela CarterQueen Elizabeth IWomen from all times, women from different classes, different races. Ah [...]

    2. Oh my god, I found it!It is no hyperbole to say that this book saved my life. I stole it off the shelves from my high school's bookstore & through it found many authors that would have taken me years to find otherwise, some not at all. The stories, novellas, & excerpts are arranged chronologically, with heaps of footnotes & information about the women who wrote them. Whoever edited this, Sanda M. Gilbert? A fucking genius, I bet she's a huge lez!

    3. This book is a fantastic resource, not just for the literature itself, but really for the chapters the authors wrote the historical/literary context for each era. Those sections alone are worth reading as a sort of separate work from the literature itself.Another fascinating thing about this book was the biographical information, especially since it seemed that every single woman author in the 19th century seemed to suffer excruciatingly from various physical ailments. I am sure there are alread [...]

    4. This gigantic tome contains works by woman from Julian of Norwich and Anne Bradstreet to the Brontes to Dorothy Parker to Sexton and Plath to Maya Angelou.I own a copy, but wouldn't give it up if you paid me.Women from all walks of life and ages and countries have been gathered together and their words are magicEAT reference material here. Could easily be found, used, in a college bookstore.

    5. This book has been a bedside table read for me since 1995. It offers a great selection of female writings spanning from the fourteenth to the end of the twentieth centuries. A great read showcasing the shifting female identity with social expansion over time and opportunity. My favorite authors remain the contemporary influences of Kate Chopin, Virginia Woolf, and Maya Angelou.

    6. In this Norton anthology, I enjoyed a beautiful tapestry of many women writers' poems, essays, letters, or excerpts of works (or whole works). I loved Anne Bradstreet's poetry, Abigail Adams' letters (especially "Remember the Ladies"), Phillis Wheatley's poetry, Sojourner Truth's story & speeches (especially "Ain't I a Woman?"), & Elizabeth Barrett Browning's poetry. I enjoyed Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Jacobs' story of survival & escape from slavery, Charlotte Bronte, Elizabeth [...]

    7. An anothology well representing women lit, used by Bender in a class at Alma. There are some good pieces in it, and nothing against the feminists of the world -- I surround myself with empowered women, God knows -- but I just got tired of story after story with the same themes: women are just as good, don't hold us down, it's a man's world, I'm going crazy, let's try suicide. Sorry, I'm going to hell, I don't mean to mock these poor women, I understand, but I'm just saying: in a class with one o [...]

    8. This is the textbook for my terrifically useless Feminism 101 indoctrination masquerading as an online Women and Literature class. I would much rather read entire books by women authors rather than trying to explicate whether a two-paragraph section of A Room of One's Own is constructivist or essentialist feminist literature. While I'm all for discovering new women writers, this book--at over 5lbs of 1,000 rice-paper-thin pages--is overwhelming and lacks direction. Plus, I hate this class.

    9. i get lost in this book every time i pick it up! an incredible collection that crosses virtually every style of fiction. puts the genre in a unique light and perspective.

    10. Contains complete novels, such as Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. An excellent compendium of too neglected by academia for too long literature.
