More About the Author

Nina Baym taught at the University of Illinois, where she specialized in American Literature. She is General Editor of the Norton Anthology of American Literature, the most widely used textbook in the field. She has won Guggenheim, National Endowment for the Humanities, and Mellon Foundation fellowships. In 2000 she won the Jay Hubbell Award from the Modern Language Association, awarded for lifetime contributions to the study of American literature. Her first book was about Nathaniel Hawthorne, and she has published a Twayne study of The Scarlet Letter. Hawthorne's complaint in a private letter about the "damn'd mob of scribbling women," whose works were popular while his were not inspired her to find out who these forgotten women were and what they wrote. The first of her books on this topic was Woman's Fiction (1978); then came American Women Writers and the Work of History; next American Women of Letters and the Nineteenth-Century Sciences. Some of her essays were brought together in Feminism and American Literary History. Her newest foray is Women Writers of the American West, 1833-1927, which describes the western books of over 340 American women including Native American women and African Americans, and covers the transMississippi West from Texas to Oregon.
