In the 1890s one phrase above all stood as shorthand for the various controversies over gender that swirled throughout the period: "the New Woman." In New Women fiction, progressive writers such as Sarah Grand, George Egerton, and Ella D'Arcy gave imaginative life to plight of modern women-and reactionaries such as Grant Allen attempted to put women back in their place. In all the leading journals of the day these and other writers argued their cases in essays, letters, and reviews as well as in fiction. This anthology brings together for the first time a representative selection of the most important, interesting, and influential of New Woman writings.

Review:

"This is a timely and marvelously useful anthology. Packed full of unabridged key documents from the period, Nelson's A New Woman Reader is a significant contribution to the burgeoning field of fin-de-siècle studies. It will also be an invaluable teaching tool: the choice of contextual material to support the short stories and New Woman play is unerringly judicious." - Sally Ledger, Birkbeck College, University of London

"This collection of essential texts, introducing and discussing the figure of the 'New Woman,' is a wonderful, stimulating mix of the new and the familiar. Diverse in genre and tone, this volume will interest both the academic and the general reader. Intelligently and informatively edited, it is a most timely and welcome anthology." - Kate Flint, Oxford University
