Product Description


The beauty of "Private Woman, Public Stage is its artful merging of U.S. history, women's history, and literature. ("Choice)

Kelley offers a richly detailed account plentiful with new findings. ("American Historical Review")

The beauty of "Private Woman, Public Stage" is its artful merging of U.S. history, women's history, and literature. ("Choice")

An illuminating and sensitive analysis of those complex women and their place in American culture. ("Journal of American History")

In Kelley's deft hands, the writers' contributions to subsequent generations seem even more profound. Those who enter the world of Southworth, Stowe, and the other literary domestics will be grateful that these women novelists did not after all remain (to paraphrase one of them) in the obscurity of their homes. ("Women's Review of Books")
