Critics’ Reviews

“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
