Felicitous Space: The Imaginative Structures of Edith Wharton and Willa Cather

Synopsis

Judith Fryer's study of novelists Edith Wharton and Willa Cather is a rich examination of the actual and imagined spaces women inhabit, perceive, and create. Turning to the period of "America's coming of age," Fryer offers a woman-centered inquiry into an era whose traditional landmarks are the frontier, the rise of the city, and World War I.
