Between the Sheets - The Literary Liaisons of Nine 20th Century Women Writers
McDowell, Lesley
$28.00
Focusing on the diaries, letters, and journals of each woman, Between the Sheets explores nine famous literary liaisons of the twentieth century. Lesley McDowell examines the extent to which each woman was prepared to put artistic ambition before personal happiness, and how dependent on their male writing partners these women felt themselves to be. She probes the consequences of the women's codependence and reveals how in many instances, their partnerships liberated unspoken desires, encouraged artistic innovations, and even shored up literary reputations. Fascinating and innovative, Between the Sheets is an invaluable addition to libraries of literary criticism and feminism....
