How Celia Changed Her Mind and Selected Stories: Rose Terry Cooke (American Women Writers) by Ammons, Elizabeth

This anthology of fiction by Rose Terry Cooke contains eleven stories, drawn together for the first time in one volume, that reflect the whole spectrum of Cookes career from the 1850s to the 1890s. It restores to American literature the work of a writer highly admired in her own day and increasingly recognized today as an important figure in the development of realism, the evolution of regionalism as a literary form, and the emergence of women writers in nineteenth-century fiction. Cookes stories are rich literarily and historically; her command of dialect, ear for dialogue, dramatic sense, and ability to draw interesting, memorable characters all distinguish her work. This reissue of some of her best work represents an important contribution to the canon of American literature. Elizabeth Ammons is Associate Professor of English nd of American Studies at Tufts University. She is the editor of Critical Essays on Harriet Beecher Stowe and the author of Edith Whartons Argument with America.
