This bibliography is intended for a broad audience. Scholars, teachers, and students alike will find it useful for giving them ideas for further research, curriculum studies, or dissertation topics. Six chapters group authors under headings such as late-nineteenth century fiction writers; early-twentieth century fiction writers; poets, dramatists and experimental writers; intellectuals, reformists and journalists; and African-American women writers. Each chapter begins with an introduction that establishes literary and historical context, identifies general studies and relevant journals, and makes reference to writers not included, yet worthy of note. For each writer there is a brief biographical entry, a listing of reissued editions of her writings, and annotations of a broad range of scholarly articles, book chapters, and full-length books on her life and work. Appendixes include listings of selected women writers by birthdate and ethnicity.

...will be most useful in academic libraries supporting literature and women's studies programs. Booklist Barstow's inclusion of critical studies of women with diverse backgrounds and experiences who wrote in 'nonliterary'...as well as 'literary'...genres adds depth to the project. ... Barstow's book is a good starting place for students or teachers interested in researching what women in the U.S. were writing about during this period. Feminist Collections: A Quarterly Of Women's Studies Resources ...a succinct reference guide to notable American authors and recent scholarship in the field of women's literature. AB Bookman's Weekly ...a valuable summary...contains ample useful information for the student or teacher embarking on a study of U.S. women's writing...annotations are economically written but provide a useful and generally accurate summary of the contents...provides an excellent overview of well-chosen material. It will have a permanent place on this reviewer's reference shelf, and belongs in every school and university library. American Reference Books Annual
