BY A WOMAN WRITT: Literature from Six Centuries by and about Women

A rather motley chunk of distaff writings from the medieval Margery Kempe to 17th-century poet Anne Finch to Mary Wollstonecraft and Mary Shelley to Harriet Martineau to Dorothy Richardson and Anais Nin to Sylvia Ashton-Warner and Muriel Rukeyser -- ""lesser-known writers"" (?) who deserve more attention, ""especially for the ways in which they wrote about women."" For the sisterhood, secondhand.
