From Our Editors

In the half-century following the conclusion of the Civil War, Americans entered into a difficult period of reconstruction — one in which great forces of change were at work in the American nation. For the first time, women writers began to have access to a wider reading public, and they began to address the inequalities and injustices of the nation and constitution that men had created. Including work by Rebecca Harding Davis and Edith Wharton, Four Stories By American Women is a book that belongs in every collection of modern literature. Edited by Cythia Griffin Wolff.
