Envisioning the New Adam: Empathic Portraits of Men by American Women Writers written by Patricia Ellen Martin Daly

 

Envisioning the New Adam: Empathic Portraits of Men by American Women Writers written by Patricia Ellen Martin Daly

Overview:

Journalist and feminist scholar Patricia Martin Daly has culled from the writings of a variety of American women a literary anthology of poems and short stories that offer sympathetic portrayals of men. Divided into two parts, with an Introduction to each, these portraits invite a dialogue between nonsexist men and women who are struggling both to free themselves from restrictive gender roles and to create a post-patriarchal society. In addition, these stories and poems represent a long-overlooked contribution by women to the American Adamic myth, the myth of America as a New World Garden of Eden. With the burgeoning interest in gender studies, this anthology is ideal for courses in Women's and Men's Studies, Gender Studies, as well as American Studies and Literature.
