This for the literary-minded, particularly those who know their English literature thoroughly, and enjoy a new approach and a brilliant analysis. The writers have taken woman in fiction, starting with Pamela and coming back again and again to her, for comparison, identification or contrast. Through this survey, they highlight the social changes of England and many of the developments in the position and psychology of women. Scholarly -- but mighty good reading, with more than a spice of humor. Primarily for study groups and libraries.
