Summary
Explores the contradictory notions of female authorship in the latter half of the 19th century and explains how American women writers of this period redefined their self-conception and contributed to American high culture. These women writers struggled against antebellum models that relegated women to domestic roles and undermined their artistic ambition, and religion served as both the subject of fiction and a driving force that challenged female authors to break established modes and achieve literary success. A discussion of the relationship between literature and the marketplace and of historical changes in the perception of art helps explain how such authors as Louisa May Alcott, Elizabeth Stuart Phelps, and Rebecca Davis Harding helped shape the emerging American high culture and created artist characters that helped women transcend their relegation to domestic and financial roles
