Acknowledgements

I HAVE MANY PEOPLE TO THANK FOR THE COMPLETION OF THIS book. I would like to begin by thanking the members of my dissertation committee, Elaine Showalter and Emory Elliott, who helped me in the beginning stages of this project and to whom I owe an incredible debt, and to Cathy Davidson, who has been a source of inspiration, help, and good advice throughout. In the revision process of the book I thank Cathie Brettschneider and Suzanne Clark, both of whom went out of their way to help this book find the light of day. I am grateful for their generosity in the face of their other commitments and time constraints. At Bucknell Press I would like to thank Greg Clingham for his prompt and professional handling of the manuscript.

I have also been blessed with many insightful and helpful readers who have asked all the right questions and pushed me to clarify my ideas: Bob Brinkmeyer, Debra Ray Cohen, Susan Donaldson, Doreen Fowler, Ann Fisher-Wirth, David Galef, Ellen Gardiner, Rochelle Glenn, Josephine Neil, Karen Raber, Lori Robison, Greg Schirmer, Jay Watson, Eric Wolfe, and Ethel Young-Minor. Their encouragement and support has helped to make this a labor of love. Several other anonymous readers have given me great advice for which I am grateful. You know who you are. For proofreading help I thank Dana Carpenter, James Lilley, Betty McLeod, Chris Stead, and John Tucker.

The graduate school and the English department at the University of Mississippi have provided valuable financial assistance that gave me time to work on my research.

An early version of chapter 3 appeared in Literature, Interpretation, Theory, and a version of chapter 5 appeared in Re-Searching Kate Chopin: Beyond the Bayou. I would like to thank the editors for permission to reprint these chapters here.

Most important, I have to thank Ivo Kamps, who has seen me through every step of this process. Without his love, commitment, and computer
