Nineteenth-Century American Women Writers: An Anthology is a multicultural, multigenre collection celebrating the quality and diversity of nineteenth-century American women's expression.

Nineteenth-Century American Women Writers reflects the latest scholarship on both traditional and unfamiliar writing and provides an unequaled view of the breadth of American women's work. Among the many writers represented are: Catharine Maria Sedgwick, Rebecca Cox Jackson, Lydia Maria Child, the Lowell Offerin writers, Margaret Fuller, Fanny Fern, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Frances E. W.
