"Working with Feminist Criticism is both a guide to understanding and using feminist criticism and also a valuable source book for simple classroom exercises and for wider reading. This is not a daunting tome, but a fantastic source of ideas for the teacher of more advanced English language. It is also a worthwhile addition to the bookshelves of anyone with an interest in criticism and a passion for reading." Vatime Newsletter. "Working with Feminist Criticism is an invaluable resource for students coming to feminist literary criticism for the first time. However, it contains lots of useful and illuminating ideas that could be taken up by more experienced students." Caroline Guerin University of Adelaide.
