About this title


Virginia Woolf and Simone de Beauvoir had argued that women's lack of access to literary training and support handicapped them as intellectuals in the public sphere. Adams (English, Loyola U.) chronicles the story of the first generation of US women who went to college toward careers as writers. Such notables as Pearl Buck, Willa Cather, Zora Neale Hurston, Mary McCarthy, Marianne Moore, and Eudora Welty (some pictured) formed their own groups, edited college papers, redefined women as writers, and innovated writing. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
