Utopian and Science Fiction by Women: Worlds of Difference (Utopianism and Communitarianism)


This collection speaks to common themes and strategies in women’s writing about their different worlds, from Margaret Cavendish’s seventeenth-century Blazing World of the North Pole to the “men-less” islands of the French writer Scudery to the eighteenth- and nineteenth-century utopias of Shelley and Gaskell, and science fiction pulps, finishing with the more contemporary feminist fictions of Le Guin, Wittig, Piercy, and Mitchison. It shows that these fictions historically speak to each other and together amount to a literary tradition of women’s writing about a better place.Used Book in Good Condition
