The main difference between the anthologies is in the contextual introduction by Angelique Richardson. Where Showalter gave a short pithy introduction to the literary aspects of women's writings, Richardson presents a long systematic summary of the issues and debates affecting the "New Woman" question.
Showalter's remains the more illuminating piece in terms of Feminist criticism; although undergrads new to the study of Women's writing will find Richardson's essay fills in the turbulent, chauvinistic social and political background that these writers had to struggle against.
