Showalter looks closely at three American classics---Little Women, The Awakening, The House of Mirth---and traces the transformations in such major themes, images, and genres of American Women's writing as the American Miranda, the Female Gothic, and the patchwork quilt. Ending with a moving description of the AIDS Memorial Quilt, she shows how the women's tradition is a literary quilt that offers a new map of a changing America.
