The Women Novelists (Barnes & Noble Digital Library)eBook - 2011
This 1919 volume features essays on four women novelists: Fanny Burney, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bront , and George Eliot. Johnson argues that women writers have contributed to literature qualities lacking in writing by men. Chief among these qualities is a natural proclivity to domestic themes. He also finds the female sense of morality more highly developed than that of male writers, and women's sense of humor to be more subtle.
