The Cambridge Guide to Women's Writing in English Paperback

Edited by Lorna Sage



This Guide aims to consolidate and epitomise the re-reading of women's writing that has gone on in the last twenty-five years.

This is an opportunity for stock-taking - a timely project, when so much writing has been rediscovered, reclaimed and republished.

There are entries on writers, on individual texts, and on general terms, genres and movements, all printed in a single alphabetical sequence.

The earliest written documents in medieval English (the visionary writings of Julian of Norwich and Margery Kempe) are covered in an historical - and geographical - sweep that takes us up to the present day.

The book reflects the spread of literacy, the history of colonisation and the development of post-colonial cultures using and changing the English language.

The entries are written by contributors from all the countries covered.

The result is a work of reference with a unique feeling for the vitality, wealth and diversity of women's writing.
