The Female Imagination
Patricia Meyer Spacks
Is there such a thing as a female literary imagination-a special brand of insight and intuition that characterises women's writing? Is there something about a novel, whether by Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte or Doris Lessing, that tells us that it could only have been written by a woman? Do the subject matter, form and style that women choose throw light on the way they think and feel?
In this brilliant and highly readable book Patricia Spacks analyses the female view of the world.
