'Heilbrun devotes a good deal of space in these lectures to the mother-daughter relationship - "the least explored and understood among all human relationships," she has called it - and she writes movingly of the guilt and pain suffered by women who, taking advantage of choices unavailable to their mothers, must necessarily leave them behind.' Kathleen Byrne, The Globe and Mail
Heilbrun looks at the biographies and memoirs of women who have altered the face of literature and the world, and reveals the ways in which feminism has changed our perceptions of their lives. Based on Heilbrun's course of public lectures in 1997, part of the distinguished Alexander lecture series at the University of Toronto.See all Product description
