Summary:
Essays on American prose writers during a period marked by enormous cultural change in a short period of time. Like female sexuality, issues of race and ethnicity were some of the most volatile themes addressed in women's prose writings of this period. Some of the many ethnic and religious groups that emerged as significant literary voices were Jewish, Native American, African American, Euramericans, and Asian.
