    This is an amazing book that gives a very comprehensive selection of women writers in the English language. It includes three novels and has poetry, plays, fiction, non-fiction from women. This anthology is notable as it was the first Norton Anthology based around a group traditionally ignored by "The Canon." Despite being from 1985, it is very well put together and holds-up to this day. This is an amazing book that gives a very comprehensive selection of women writers in the English language.

    Oh my god, I found it! It is no hyperbole to say that this book saved my life. I stole it off the shelves from my high school's bookstore & through it found many authors that would have taken me years to find otherwise, some not at all. The stories, novellas, & excerpts are arranged chronologically, with heaps of footnotes & information about the women who wrote them. Whoever edited this, Sanda M. Gilbert? A fucking genius, I bet she's a huge lez! Oh my god, I found it! It is no hyperbole to say that this book saved my life.

    This gigantic tome contains works by woman from Julian of Norwich and Anne Bradstreet to the Brontes to Dorothy Parker to Sexton and Plath to Maya Angelou. I own a copy, but wouldn't give it up if you paid me. Women from all walks of life and ages and countries have been gathered together and their words are magic. GREAT reference material here. Could easily be found, used, in a college bookstore.

    This book has been a bedside table read for me since 1995. It offers a great selection of female writings spanning from the fourteenth to the end of the twentieth centuries. A great read showcasing the shifting female identity with social expansion over time and opportunity. My favorite authors remain the contemporary influences of Kate Chopin, Virginia Woolf, and Maya Angelou.

    From the passage selections, introductions, and historical context analysis sections I’ve read, in deeply impressed by this anthology. A must own for teachers who want to diversify their classroom content away from mainly men.

    Still referencing this work and dipping into it for great selections from a marvelously rich canon.

    In this Norton anthology, I enjoyed a beautiful tapestry of many women writers' poems, essays, letters, or excerpts of works (or whole works). I loved Anne Bradstreet's poetry, Abigail Adams' letters (especially "Remember the Ladies"), Phillis Wheatley's poetry, Sojourner Truth's story & speeches (especially "Ain't I a Woman?"), & Elizabeth Barrett Browning's poetry. I enjoyed Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Jacobs' story of survival & escape from slavery, Charlotte Bronte, Elizabeth Cady Stanton In this Norton anthology, I enjoyed a beautiful tapestry of many women writers' poems, essays, letters, or excerpts of works (or whole works).

I enjoyed Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Jacobs' story of survival & escape from slavery, Charlotte Bronte, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Emily Bronte, George Elliot, Florence Nightingale, & Emily Dickinson. My favorite (excerpt or whole work) was Alice Walker's "In Search of Our Mother's Gardens." I, also, read Virginia Wolf's "A Room of One's Own" and many more writers who broadened my literary horizons. I definitely recommend this book that covers a multitude of women writers and writing styles from past eras to the Modern era (20th century). (This book covered mostly American & European women writers.)

    This is the textbook for my terrifically useless Feminism 101 indoctrination masquerading as an online Women and Literature class. I would much rather read entire books by women authors rather than trying to explicate whether a two-paragraph section of A Room of One's Own is constructivist or essentialist feminist literature. While I'm all for discovering new women writers, this book--at over 5lbs of 1,000 rice-paper-thin pages--is overwhelming and lacks direction. Plus, I hate this class.

    Contains complete novels, such as Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. An excellent compendium of too neglected by academia for too long literature.
