Название: Encyclopedia Of Feminist Literature
Автор: Snodgrass M.E.
A volume in Facts On File's Literary Movements series, the Encyclopedia of Feminist Literature focuses attention on "the equitable representation of women." Around 530 alphabetical, cross-referenced entries treat authors, works, and topics related to feminism. Most are a page or so in length, and all are followed by short bibliographies. Helpful appendixes include authors by genre, major feminist authors and their works, and a time line of major works of feminist literature that ranges from 590 B.C. to 2005. Extensive bibliographies of primary and secondary sources include e-texts. The bibliography of secondary sources is particularly notable for its breadth and depth. A filmography provides additional access to feminist work. This encyclopedia does, like others in the series, need a table of contents or list of entries at the beginning.
Covered authors display a wide range of time periods, genres, and cultures, from Jane Austen to Ama Ata Aidoo, Joy Harjo to bell hooks — the list is impressive. The majority are fiction writers and poets, in addition to theorists and social critics Simone de Beauvoir, Susan Brownmiller, Helene Cixous, Luce Irigaray, Elaine Showalter, Naomi Wolf, and more. There are other types of authors represented, including Elizabeth Blackwell, America's first female medical doctor. Beauty myth, Confinement, Ecofeminism, and Wisewomen are a few of the other topics that are covered; these entries tend to be longer and more in-depth and have more developed bibliographies.
