Synopsis: Traditionally forgotten or suppressed in literary history, the incest narratives in this anthology reveal that generations of women have given familiar and repeated voice to the incestuous experience.
From Kirkus Reviews: Startling, wide-ranging gathering of fiction, poetry, and memoirs produced from the 12th century to the present by women about the experience of incest. While the quality of the pieces vary widely, taken together they administer a considerable psychological jolt. The collection includes an excerpt from the Lais of Marie De France, describing the obsessive efforts of a king to possess his daughter; a novella by Mary Shelley (``Mathilda''), suppressed in her lifetime; an angry portrait of an adolescent's seduction by her father; an intensely melodramatic story by Louisa Bronson Alcott (``A Whisper in the Dark''); autobiographical recollections of incest by Virginia Woolf and Maya Angelou; poetry by Sylvia Plath (``Daddy'') and Dorothy Allison (``Upcountry: 3''), and excerpts from novels by Buchi Emecheta (The Family) and Toni Morrison (The Bluest Eye). An original idea, well researched and executed. -- Copyright ©1996, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
