qBurdened by what were perceived as the metaphysical, moral, and physiological limitations of women, the authors of these writings were enjoined to silence. Though sometimes published in their own day, the works were subsequently interred in research libraries or on microfilm. Vibrant with personal concerns, these voices will pierce the consciousness of twentieth-century readers and contribute to scholarship in literature and history courses and in all aspects of gender studies.q--BOOK JACKET.
