b'46 CRITICAL INSIGHTS: THEMESLiteratureFeminismTop 75 Community College Resources CHOICE, October 2021A great introduction to the basics of feminist theory and its applications to literature. Against the GrainLITERATUREFeminism has had, perhaps, the greatest impact of any relatively recent approach to literary theory. It has not only helped create or revive interest in many previously little-known or much-neglected authors but has also raised key issues about genderissues that have influenced numerous other approaches, such as multiculturalism and LGBTQ studies. This volume offers deliberately diverse approaches to women writers, women-centered texts, and feminist methods of interpretation.September 2020 | Print ISBN: 978-1-64265-663-3|Library Price: $105Flash FictionA thoughtful collection that will engage.
