About this book


In this readable account, Jennifer Breen indicates how readers of twentieth-century women's fiction can identify what is subversive of and what supports a traditional view of a woman's role. She analyses a broad range of women's fiction and relates her readings to social issues of the day. This book is an exciting guide for students, teachers, and general readers of either gender who are interested in twentieth-century fiction by women.
