Although she is one of the lesser-known figures in American literature, Constance Fenimore Woolson (1840-1894) authored some of the most carefully crafted and realistic short stories of the post-Civil War era. Constance Fenimore Woolson's Nineteenth Century: Essays offers a collection of critical essays from different theoretical perspectives that offer new insights into Woolson and reintegrate her into nineteenth-century scholarship.
An introduction by Victoria Brehm provides an incisive overview of Woolson's life and oeuvre, and a chronology of her life concludes the book. These essays explore topics crucial to understanding the period's literature and suggest new directions for scholarship. Together they constitute a groundbreaking collection that expands the available body of criticism about Woolson and her contemporaries.
