Artistry of Anger
Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungGrasso explores the ways in which black and white 19th-century women writers define, express, and dramatize anger. Offering close readings of works by Lydia Maria Child, Maria W. Stewart, Fanny Fern, and Harriet Wilson, she shows how women used an aesthetic of discontent to address such complex social and political issues as slavery, industrialization, imperialism, and race relations.
PortraitLinda M. Grasso is Associate Professor of English at York College, City University of New York.
Pressestimmen"Grasso writes beautifully, with clarlty and grace. Her argument that anger operates as a driving force in the work of both white and black women writers provides an astonishingly simple, accurate, and useful paradigm for readers and scholars trying to understand the pre-Civil War period in American women's writing. Her deeply thoughtful, historically grounded, central idea--along with her penetrating applications of that idea to the work of Child, Stewart, Fern, and Wilson-make this a study that will be widely read and relied upon." - Elizabeth Ammons, Tufts University
