Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Two publications important in the study of women's literature appeared this spring -- The Norton Anthology of Literature by Women, edited by Sandra Gilbert and Susan Gubar, and this anthology of previously published essays on feminist literary theory. These volumes will probably have greatest impact on university courses in women's literature, but one should not overlook their significance for ethnic studies. Like studies in ethnic literatures, feminist criticism has before it the task of defining a tradition outside of the main-stream and establishing a literary canon not previously acknowledged as valid.
