particularly for recent works, are making it very difficult for scholars to assemble academically oriented anthologies, and that is unfortunate.
Because this collection initiates new directions in scholarship, and because it was prepared under serious economic constraints, it lacks, I am sure, many works that ought to be presented here. I apologize for that and invite others to point out appropriate works and to join me in the postpatriarchal work of studying empathic portraits of men by women writers and of revisiting the American Adamic myth. Much is to be gained by this study.
