Constance Fenimore Woolson: Homeward Bound, by Sharon L. Dean
Hardcover in Very Good Condition
Dean (English, Rivier College, New Hampshire) examines Woolson's (1840-1894) novels and short stories, focusing on how her work illustrates late 19th century attitudes about a variety of cultural issues including art, women's rights, and the nexus of social class, race relations, and ethnicity. Also examined are how Woolson's transient lifestyle and progressive deafness isolated her from family and friends and Woolson's friendship with Henry James and his family.
