9780826209634: Quilt Culture: Tracing the Pattern

 

As a blanket, a commemorative covering, and a work of art, the quilt is a nearly universal cultural artifact. In recent years it has been recognized as one of our most compelling symbols of cultural diversity and the power of women. In this collection, Cheryl B. Torsney and Judy Elsley bring together eleven provocative essays on the quilt as metaphor--in literature, history, politics, and philosphy. This interdisciplinary approach makes Quilt Culture an extraordinarily rich exploration of a cultural artifact whose meaning is far more complex than that of a simple bed covering.

About the Author:

Cheryl B. Torsney is Associate Professor of English at West Virginia University in Morgantown.  She is the author of Constance Fenimore Woolson:  The Grief of Artistry and the editor of Critical Essays on Constance Fenimore Wilson.

Judy Elsley is Assistant Professor of English at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah.  She is the author of many articles on quilts as well as a forthcoming collection of essays entitled Getting Comfortable:  A Woman in the West.

From Library Journal:

As quilting has evolved into an art form and social statement, it is now coming under the scrutiny of scholars. The 11 essays in this collection cover quilts in very diverse ways. Several discuss quilting as a literary metaphor, analyzing writings by Alice Walker and Toni Morrison. Others define quilting according to Marxist theory and the significance of quilting as "social art." All the contributors to this collection are professors from major universities. This is a very odd collection that really doesn't fit into one subject area. Recommended only where there is demand for the scholarly assessment of a popular art.
