About the Book

"Schools with strong women's studies programs will find this an invaluable source for understanding the foundations of feminist literary theory." -- HE Bookwatch

"The range of topics covered in this single volume is impressive. Overall, the Encyclopedia would make a good addition to any reference collection." -- Feminist Collections
The Encyclopedia of Feminist Literary Theory is an essential resource for scholars and students of feminist literary studies. Now available in paperback, the book offers a new, extended introduction outlining recent developments in the field such as ecofeminism, globalism and diaspora, defining emerging terms such as "cisgendered" and documenting the evolution of queer theory.
This volume provides overview entries on key people, issues, theories, terms, concerns, and methodologies in feminist literary theory. In addition, the book presents entries detailing the significance of literary periods and fields such as Medieval Studies, Shakespeare, and Romanticism for feminist theory, suggesting how feminisms affect the development of new ideas and intellectual practices.
Incorporating short bibliographies within each entry and providing a comprehensive index, this volume offers both a critical resource and a springboard for further research.
