New Woman Fiction: Women Writing First-Wave Feminism by Ann Heilmann


pdf epub fb2 djvu



The symbol of the shifting categories of gender and sexuality, the New Woman epitomized the spirit of the fin-de-siècle. This monograph offers an interdisciplinary approach to the growing field of New Woman studies by exploring the relationship between the first-wave feminist literature, the 19th-century women's movement and female consumer culture. The book places the debate about femininity, feminism, and fiction in its cultural and socio-historical context exploring New Woman fiction as a genre, whose emerging theoretical discourse prefigured concepts central to second-wave feminist theory.
