"This collection represents an appreciation of Sarah Orne Jewett in every sense of the word. It both grasps the nature, worth, and quality of Jewett’s oeuvre and judges it with heightened perception and candor."--Mary Lowe-Evans, University of West Florida

Essays about identity and difference, tradition and transformation, region and nation add an energetic and diverse set of voices to current discussions about Sarah Orne Jewett, 19th-century American women’s writing, and the reshaping of the literary canon.
