About the Author:

Glasgow was a self-taught scholar and one of the most important modern novelists of the South. She won the Pulitzer Prize in 1942.

Review:

Ellen Glasgow set out to write an ironic novel about Southern ladies; in the end, however, sympathy for her character Virginia took over, turning "a comedy of manners into a tragedy of human fate." The resulting novel follows Virginia through her early life as the daughter of a pastor and his submissive wife, into Virginia's romantic marriage to a handsome, dynamic man, and on to her increasingly difficult life as a wife-with-children. In contrast to Virginia is her friend Susan, caught in expectations of filial duty, who tries to find another way to live. The situations and decisions here are never easy. Is passionate love preferable to life with a steady, less exciting man? Who comes first - husband, children, or self? Is submission a necessary aspect of life as wife and mother? This novel provides no simple answers. Through the lives of Virginia and Susan, Ellen Glasgow considers and attacks the traditions and expectations of turn-of-the-century Southern society, the Church, and the feminists of her day. -- For great reviews of books for girls, check out Let's Hear It for the Girls: 375 Great Books for Readers 2-14. -- From 500 Great Books by Women; review by Erica Bauermeister
