(Formerly LITR 225) America's 19th century saw the emergence of a growing number of "damned scribbling" women writers who moved at times boldly, at times hesitantly, into the public space through publication. A period of enormous increase in population, of mesmerists, spiritualists, and social reform, the century's female authors participated in this ferment of new ways of thinking. The turbulence of the relatively new country emerging and dealing with abolition, the eventual Civil War and its aftermath, fostered a sisterhood of women writers working both with and against the American Transcendentalists and other well-known period authors to form a "literature of their own." Journals, letters and essays in the mass market magazines created what is often termed domestic, sentimental literature which we will analyze through a discussion of literary criticism and merit.
