Given that women more than men are degraded by urban industrial capitalism, feminists have mistakenly sought radical alternatives within an urban intellectual milieu, Weissman argues. A more radical tradition, descending from the rural Romantic paradigm of Wordsworth and Shelley, is traceable in novelists as diverse as Austen, Hawthorne, and Forster. Rejecting contemporary theoretical models in favor of a deliberately empiricist approach, Weissman locates a viable mode of feminist individualism celebrated in 19th-century English and American narratives that has been ignored by other feminist critics. While producing some new insights, Weissman's sprawling thesis frequently wears itself thin.Mollie Brodsky, English Dept., Rutgers Univ., New Brunswick, N.J.
