About this item

In their new monograph, Gender and Short Fiction: Women’s Tales in Contemporary Britain, Jorge Sacido-Romero and Laura Mª Lojo-Rodríguez explain why artistically ambitious women writers continue turning to the short story, a genre that has not yet attained the degree of literary prestige and social recognition the novel has had in the modern period. In this timely volume, the editors endorse the view that the genre still retains its potential as a vehicle for the expression of female experience alternative to and/or critical with dominant patriarchal ideology present at the very onset of the development of the modern British short story at the turn of the nineteenth century.
