Private Voices, Public Lives: Women Speak on the Literary Life
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungInterweaving the personal, private voice with scholarly, public intent, Nelson and the other contributors argue for a more interactive and cooperative approach to the teaching, reading, critiquing, and writing of literature. These essays are a direct result of the desire by many women within the academic community to break free of what has been called the "masculine" or "adversary" mode of literary criticism. "Private Voices, Public Lives" is of critical importance to readers, teachers, reviewers, and critics. The essays incorporate ideas on current issues of autobiography, memoir, women's voice, reader response, diversity, life writing, and gender.
PortraitNancy Owen Nelson taught at Auburn University, Albion College, and Augustana before accepting her present position at Henry Ford Community College. Her previous book, "The Selected Letters of Frederick Manfred: 1932-""1954," led to her exploration of androgyny and other gender issues.
