Description

Chapter in Transatlantic Women: Nineteenth Century American Women Writers in Great Britain, edited by Beth L. Lueck, Brigitte Bailey, and Lucinda L. Damon-Bach.

About this book:

In this volume, fifteen scholars from diverse backgrounds analyze American women writers’ transatlantic exchanges in the nineteenth century. They show how women writers (and often their publications) traveled to create or reinforce professional networks and identities, to escape strictures on women and African Americans, to promote reform, to improve their health, to understand the workings of other nations, and to pursue cultural and aesthetic education. Presenting new material about women writers’ literary friendships, travels, reception and readership, and influences, the volume offers new frameworks for thinking about transatlantic literary studies.
