THE OTHER AMERICAN RENAISSANCE The American Renaissance: that vibrant period in the late 19th and early 20th centuries when Hawthorne, Melville, Poe, Twain, Whitman, Thoreau, James, and others produced many of the greatest works in American literature. But what were women up to during these extraordinary years? In fact, women at this time were vastly more popular and successful than their male counterparts, reaching enormous audiences via mainstream magazines. But their work was often dismissed by critics—in many cases, perhaps not coincidentally, the very male writers they were routinely outselling—as “regional” or “sentimental” fiction. Some of these women produced brilliant work that continues to entertain and surprise us today, transforming the genres and formulas of their day with subversive characters and plots and using humor, horror, or romance to carry their points. This collection spans more than 60 years, from before the upheaval of the Civil War, when women first became a major force in popular fiction, until World War I, when women like Edith Wharton and Willa Cather had obtained the respect and status previously afforded only to men. The writers included here may be less well-known than their male contemporaries, and in many cases have only recently been retrieved from obscurity, but they represent an unexplored treasure trove of American literature, featuring all the diversity and drama of women’s lives in a dynamic time of conflict and change.
