Abstract

In Feminism and American Literary History: Essays, Nina Baym expresses her concern for how and why women writers have been left out of the traditional canon of American Literature. Using historical research, Baym proposes that women have been writing successfully--both financially and artistically--since the beginning of America's settlement. Not only were women successful commercially, but they were also prominent, accountable for at least one-third of the market and possibly more.
