Recovering Feminist Criticism: Modern Women Writers and Feminist Periodical Studies



The new periodical studies offers material for those interested in feminist criticism and the study of the modernist woman writer (or those interested in early twentieth-century women’s writing defined more broadly). Modern periodicals such as little magazines, women’s magazines, feminist papers, literary reviews give us access not only to understudied or little known modern women writers but also, in book reviews and critical essays, give us examples of a feminist literary criticism devoted to understanding the problem of the woman writer.
