A Literature of Their Own: British Women Novelists From Brontë to Lessing by #ElaineShowalter Published in #1977, this classic #feminist study of #British #womennovelists places its famous subjects like #CharlotteBrontë, #GeorgeEliot, #KatherineMansfield and their rich works like #JaneEyre, #TheMillontheFloss, and others along with those of the minor or forgotten #femaleauthors as part of a tradition of #femalewritings which is a canon by itself. The building of this continuity of influence and inspiration completes a picture of the social conditions in which women's books have been produced. #ALiteratureofTheirOwn #feminism #feministcriticism #classic #criticism #novel #literarycanon #literature #english

This #1970 book is regarded as a #classic treatise of feminism and a key work on f radical feminism. Written by #KateMillett, this work identifies #patriarchy as a socially conditioned belief system masquerading as nature. She's also demonstrated how its attitudes and systems penetrate #literature, #philosophy, #psychology, and #politics. This text shook the foundations of the #literarycanon by castigating time-honored classics for their use of sex to degrade women. #genderrole #literarycriticism #feminism #radicalfeminism #literarycanon #rereading

Looking forward to celebrating #womenintranslation month by jumping into Eileen Chang’s Lust, Caution for the next episode of @literarycanonball #WITMonth #ReadWomen

I wrote a poem about people in urban societies, removed from their history: The multiplex of humans, Connected mind to mind, Thought to thought, All liberal, all undefined. Rootless in their thoughts, Without place or time,  The image of humanity, Removed from the sublime. Hiding in their iron tower, The canon of humanity, Weeps for the urban plebs, For they all lack sanity.

Reading Philip Larkin's 'Money.'

Poem of the Week. 'Money' by Philip Larkin. One of my favourite poets in the canon of English Literature is Philip Larkin. Which poets inspire you?

Today's #grimdragon prompt is That's what she said! As a fan of The Office, this phrase has been a part of my vocabulary for a few years now. It's a joke that I still laugh at, and I'm not at all embarrassed about that. 😂 I don't remember if I've ever shown off my Penguin Classics Deluxe edition of Persuasion, so it's definitely past time. Persuasion is my favorite Jane Austen novel, and it's the one Austen that I've read the most. 😍 I love Anne Elliott, the unmarried protagonist who believes she has thrown away her chance at true love until her former suitor walks back into her life. 👨‍✈️Despite the fact that Anne's family does not seem to appreciate her, we as readers see her quiet strength and accomplishments. Say what you will about Austen, but you can not deny that her female protagonists usually act as a lens through which readers can see the contradictions and follies of British society during this time period. Anne’s a sympathetic character to root for as she comes to realize how important her words, and her silences, are to the people in her life. 👏 QOTD: Has anyone watched the film adaptations? I can't remember if I've seen the oldest one, and I'm wondering if they're worth watching. If not, what TV/film adaptation should I be watching? 📽 -Len #HotJulyReads: Beautiful Cover #mindforbooksjuly: #Rereads #BNDTPJuly18: Favorite Supporting Characters - I love Wentworth's sister Sophia and her husband! #JCFjuly: Fave Standalone #ReadWinJuly18: OTP - Anne + Wentworth! #BookReadHappyHour: Chracters I'd invite to a barbecue...

The omission of women from the canon of Armenian literature has had resounding psychological consequences, says Anais Chagankerian in our latest op-ed. Anais is the woman behind @anahitoferebuni, a platform aimed at amplifying the voices of Armenian women and promoting their roles as agents for change. Click the link in our bio to read.

“At the kitchen table she examined the glass of ice. Each cube was rounded by room temperature, dissolving in its own remains, and belatedly she understood that this was how a loved one disappeared. Despite the shock wave of walking into an empty flat, the absence isn’t immediate, more a fade from the present tense you shared, a melting into the past, not an erasure but a conversion in form, from presence to memory, from solid to liquid, and the person you once touched runs over your skin, now in sheets down your back, and you may bathe, may sink, may drown in the memory, but your fingers cannot hold it.” Anthony Marra / A Constellation of Vital Phenomena - - - #debutbooks #favoritebooks

Attempting to find the most impractical reading spot. Couldn’t resist this shot for #WHPshapes.

Day 4 of #bookstagramtogetherjune: Oldies but Goodies, aka Classics! As an English major, my life is consumed by classics. I gather them whenever I can find them, so I'm pretty sure this isn't even the extent of my collection. (I tell myself that I'm building my future classroom library so I dont feel bad about having so many unread books.) • • Can you spot your favorite classic in the pile? If not, tell me what your favorite is! (Mine is The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) • • • #books #bookworm #bookstagram #readingchallenge #literature #classics #literarycanon

I don't care what you are or who you are, but everybody should read The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. Especially if you're any kind of American. Or have remote interest in the folly of the American Dream. I just, I just love this book so much. (I own 4 copies and counting.) There's so much symbolism and subtle messages, and it's ideal for Jazz Age enthusiasts who recognize the disillusionment of it all. Or for those of you who keep the hope alive. I feel like it covers so much, so so much about love and relationships and money and fame and ah, please go read it if you can. AND THEN TELL ME ABOUT IT. #bookstoread #books #thegreatgatsby #classicamericanliterature #americanliterature #jazzage #literature #literarycanon #greatbooksofthewesternworld
