about

The Country of the Pointed Firs by Sarah Orne Jewett is one of the most important works of New England local color fiction. This collection of essays builds on feminist literary scholarship that affirms the value of Jewett's work, but goes beyond previously published studies by offering an analysis of how race, nationalism, and the literary marketplace shape her narrative. The volume constitutes a major rethinking of Jewett's contribution to American literature, and will be of interest to the fields of American literary studies, feminist cultural criticism, and American studies.

Editorial Reviews

"Well-written and containing useful summaries of recent criticism, this work is valuable for anyone engaged with Jewett, feminist criticism, or regional writing. It should be the basis for more detailed examinations of 19th- and 20th-century visions of community. Recommended for all libraries." M. L. Robertson, Choice
