Cover of: To write like a woman | Joanna Russ

About the Book

From the back cover:

Joanna Russ has written -- as novelist, short-story writer, and critic -- on science fiction, fantasy, and feminism. These essays reflect the breadth of Russ's critical work, and consider a wide range of topics, including the aesthetic of science fiction; the lesbian identity of Willa Cather, revealed in her writing; horror stories and the supernatural; feminist utopias; Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley, the "mother" of science fiction; popular literature for women (the "Modern Gothic"); the hidden dimension of popular culture's fascination with "technology"; and the feminist education of graduate students in English. Russ also addresses theorists and critics of literature -- as they examine her own work and the work of other writers.
