Reviews

?Feminist Literary Theory: A Reader is an indispensable guide, companion and handbook for students and teachers of women?s literature. No other anthology offers so many bite-sized tasters of work on gendered authorship, literary production, critical reception, sexuality and genre ? from romantic fiction to travel writing. Mary Eagleton?s clear and informative introductions contextualize the debates represented by each extract, suggest connections between them and point to further reading. This third edition maintains and develops the irreplaceable breadth of the previous editions with several new pieces on such areas as autobiography, science fiction and border talk. The extra section, ?Writing ?Glocal??, investigates dynamically evolving dialogues between feminism and postcolonialism, diaspora narratives and transculturalism. Whether you read from start to finish or choose to sample selectively, this rich collection will expand your knowledge and understanding of feminist thought, both as an historical discipline and as an excitingly relevant and progressive set of ideas.? ?Jane Dowson, De Montfort University
