This book was required for my college course. Even so, it is surprisingly worth reading for those interested in women authors and their works. It has a sampling of most eras, including modern. It also includes a mini-bio of each author. It includes excerpts from novels, short stories, essays, speeches, and poems.

This is the best anthology of Women's Literature ever. If you have no other book of Women's Literature this is the one to have.

Includes works by canonical British and American female writers and poets. Relatively few African, Middle-eastern, or Asian female writers. Recommend you look elsewhere if you are studying women writers from one of the above regions.

I needed these books for a Women's Literature class. The price was wonderful as my school was selling them $55 each used. The material is not really my cup of tea, but it has been very informative.

This was exactly what was described as I needed it for my college Intro to Womens Literature class and the boxed set was paperback and wrapped in plastic. Very pleased with my purchase.

This anthology has been invaluable as a literature major at a small private university. I am happy to say that this is one volume I would not consider selling back at the end of the semester! Wonderful selection of both contemporary and past authors that have written on a variety of topics. I would highly recommend this edition to all! The headnotes on each author are fabulous additions to each text as well that grant the reader historical context for each selection.

One thing that sets this anthology apart is the inclusion of authors not traditionally used in canonical works!
