Boss Ladies, Watch Out!: Essays on Women, Sex, and Writing

Գրքի շապիկի երեսը
Psychology Press, 2002 - 309 էջ
"The articles collected in Boss Ladies, Watch Out! constitute an extended meditation - both learned and personal - on just what it means to be a Female Critic. In the book's opening essays Castle examines how women became critics in the first place - scandalously at times - in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. She explores in particular Jane Austen's "talismanic" role in the establishment of a female critical tradition.
