This major study offers a broad view of the writing and careers of eighteenth-century women poets, casting new light on the ways in which poetry was read and enjoyed, on changing poetic tastes in British culture, and on the development of many major poetic genres and traditions. Rather than presenting a chronological survey, Paula R. Backscheider explores the forms in which women wrote and the uses to which they put those forms. Considering more than forty women in relation to canonical male writers of the same era, she concludes that women wrote in all of the genres that men did but often ada

"Inventing Herself" is an account of women, from the 18th century to the present, who lived life on a grand scale. Elaine Showalter uncovers the lives of feminist intellectuals, focusing on figures ranging from Mary Wollstoncraft to Camille Paglia, her sources as diverse as "A Vindication of the Rights of Women" and "Scream 2". She also scrutinizes the fragmenting feminism of the 1990s - neo-conservative backlash, Paglia whiplash, Wolfian eyelash - and addresses the dreams and aspirations of women who do not see themselves as part of the feminist movement. In conclusion, she shows how the inte

This title presents an insight into moral skepticism of the 20th century. The author argues that our every-day moral codes are an ’error theory’ based on the presumption of moral facts which, he persuasively argues, don’t exist. His refutation of such facts is based on their metaphysical ’queerness’ and the observation of cultural relativity.
