Summary Women Writers in the United States is a celebration of the many forms of work - written and social, tangible and intangible - produced by American women.
Furthering their work in The Oxford Companion to Women's Writing in the United States, Davis and West document the variety and volume of women's work in the United States in a clear and accessible timeline format. They present information on the full spectrum of women's writing - including fiction, poetry, biography, political manifestos, essays, advice columns, and cookbooks - alongside a chronology of developments in social and cultural history that are especially pertinent to women's lives. This extensive chronology illustrates the diversity of women who have lived and written in the United States and creates a sense of the full trajectory of individual careers. A valuable and rich source of information on women's studies, literature, and history, Women Writers in the United States will enable readers to locate familiar and unfamiliar women's texts and to place them in the context out of which they emerged.
