Product description

Review

"Jansen does what she does best, that is pull us into the story and help us understand her interpretation. Reading this new work, I felt as though I was becoming re-acquainted with an old friend sharing her new knowledge. Jansen has brought her informative conversational style that was so well done in her earlier works to this new discussion of women and their texts." - Shawndra Holderby, Mansfield University of Pennsylvania

"Jansen has identified a crucial theme which has not been explored in the scholarly literature, skillfully balancing her discovery of a unifying element with an extremely diverse group of women - worlds apart.  Jansen's achievement is that she offers a cogent argument that respects and celebrates the different historical moments and cultural spaces that her authors occupy . . . This is refreshing to read, and her audience will be well-served . . . Her writing is engaging, instructive, and inspiring." - Victoria L. Mondelli, Director, Teaching Learning Center, Borough of Manhattan Community College, CUNY

Book Description

An interdisciplinary exploration of a recurring theme in writing by women: the dream of finding or creating a private and secluded retreat from the world of men
