Including essays on Virginia Woolf and inherited wealth, Roger Scruton's anti-feminism and Slut Walk and the politics of flippancy, this collection offers a snapshot view of the diverse feminist research being conducted in English studies today and locates this work in the context of the rich, complex and extensive history of feminist literary criticism. Despite the current, very exciting, popular resurgence of interest in feminism, there have been relatively few attempts to reconsider the range and depth of the feminist scholarship produced in the discipline of English studies, particularly from the 1970s onwards. Through six distinct, individual pieces of rigorous and innovative new work, this collection provides a specific focus on the contemporary influence of the substantial inheritance of feminist literary criticism and considers the dynamics of intellectual inheritance within a feminist literary tradition.Shawa#39;s essay offers a witty and moving account of her part in the founding of feminist English studies, and deftly ... own reservations about a new generation of popular feminists today in the context of debates between feminists in the 1930s.
