Description - Transformations of Domesticity in Modern Women's Writing by Thomas Foster
This volume makes connections between feminist criticism of domestic ideology in the 19th century, modernist women's experiments with literary form, contemporary feminist debates about the politics of location, and postmodern theories of social space. The book identifies a coherent transition of women's writing that transforms domestic ideologies of "woman's place" by redefining the ideas about space that underlie that ideology. The result is to open the space of gender identity to new relations of class and race.
