Smith, Glasgow, Welty, Hellman, Porter, and Hurston
Feminism and liberalism in autobiographical writings of six women of the American South
This study is an intertextual examination of selected self-writings by Lillian Smith, Ellen Glasgow, Eudora Welty, Lillian Hellman, Katherine Anne Porter, and Zora Neale Hurston. Here their memoirs are placed within a context of southern feminism and the more inclusive discourse of modern American liberalism.
