About

Overview

Originally published in print format in 1999.

This Guide aims to consolidate and epitomise the re-reading of women's writing that has gone on in the last twenty-five years. This is an opportunity for stock-taking - a timely project, when so much writing has been rediscovered, reclaimed and republished. There are entries on writers, on individual texts, and on general terms, genres and movements, all printed in a single alphabetical sequence.

A one-volume reference work of over 700 pages in length, comprising more than 2,500 entries in alphabetical sequence from over 300 writers, journalists, critics and academics. The work explores a wide range of literatures in English, as well as foreign writers who have made a significant impact in translation.

This volume comprises an alphabetized sequence of entries on women writers from medieval times to the present, entries on all the major titles, genres and movements. The Guide reflects the spread of literacy, the history of colonisation and the development of post-colonial cultures using and changing the English language: there are entries on writers from all countries of the world in which English is written. This is a fitting volume for the end of a century in which women around the world have become readers and writers.
