Description
The inspiration for Elaine Showalter's Vintage Book of American Women Writers, as well as an ideal companion to that collection of writings from American women since Colonial times, this groundbreaking literary history celebrates authors who have been marginalized or overlooked simply because they were women. Showalter surveys more than 250 female writers, from the very famous (Harriet Beecher Stowe, Dorothy Parker, Flannery O'Connor, Toni Morrison) to the unfairly overlooked (early feminist novelist Catherine Sedgwick, Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright Susan Glaspell), and integrates women's contributions into our nation's literary heritage.

"A Jury of Her Peers is a work of astonishing vision, breadth, intelligence, and audacity. Elaine Showalter, long recognized as our preeminent feminist scholar-critic, whose prose shimmers with wickedly funny asides, has produced the most ambitious and brilliantly executed book of her career, one that is sure to be required reading for all who have an interest in American literary history."—Joyce Carol Oates
