    Feminisms is the first comprehensive anthology of feminist literary criticism and theory as it is being practiced today in departments of English in North America. In it the reader will find fifty-eight previously published essays by fifty-three well-known critics. This anthology includes classic and representative essays from the midseventies to 1990, covering a spectrum of diverse points of view from Marxist, deconstructionist, new-historicist, psychoanalytic, structuralist, and other approaches to literature and film. Rather than organizing this material according to decade or subdisicipline, the editors have focused on issues central to feminist literary theory.

    The thirteen sections are: - institutions
    - methodologies
    - canon
    - tradition
    - body
    - desire
    - reading
    - discourse
    - ethnicity
    - history
    - class
    - men
    - autobiography

    Each section includes essays addressing the intersections of feminist concerns with questions of class, race, sexual preference, and nationality.

    In the landmark 1991 edition of Feminisms, Robyn Warhol and Diane Price Herndl assembled the most comprehensive collection of American and British feminist literary criticism ever to be published. Believing that the feminist movement can only move forward where difference commands attention, not dismissal or negativism, they have continue the mission of providing a multiplicity of perspectives and approaches. This anthology contains three new sections (Conflict, Gaze, and Practice) and includes more selections by and about women of color and lesbians. Aimed at academics and the general public alike, this collection is an indispensable guide to the range of practice on campus today in the field of feminist literary criticism. -- First comprehensive survey and selection on feminist literary and criticism. -- Organized thematically rather than chronologically or by critical orientation. --Sixty-six essays on contemporary developments in the field; more representation of multicultural perspectives. -- New introduction by editors
