This critical, historical, and theoretical study looks at a little-known group of novels written during the 1930s by women who were literary radicals. Arguing that class consciousness was figured through metaphors of gender, Paula Rabinowitz challenges the conventional wisdom that feminism as a discourse disappeared during the decade. She focuses on the ways in which sexuality and maternity reconstruct the "classic" proletarian novel to speak about both the working-class woman and the radical female intellectual. Two well-known novels bracket this study: Agnes Smedley's Daughters of Earth (1929) and Mary McCarthy's The Company She Keeps (1942). In all, Rabinowitz surveys more than forty novels of the period, many largely forgotten. Discussing these novels in the contexts of literary radicalism and of women's literary tradition, she reads them as both cultural history and cultural theory. Through a consideration of the novels as a genre, Rabinowitz is able to theorize about the interrelationship of class and gender in American culture. Rabinowitz shows that these novels, generally dismissed as marginal by scholars of the literary and political cultures of the 1930s, are in fact integral to the study of American fiction produced during the decade. Relying on recent feminist scholarship, she reformulates the history of literary radicalism to demonstrate the significance of these women writers and to provide a deeper understanding of their work for twentieth-century American cultural studies in general.

This challenging book brings to light a mythic dimension of seventeen important eighteenth and early nineteenth-century narratives that revolve around the persecution of one or more important female characters, and offers original reading of novels by Richardson, Fielding, Burney, Radcliffe, Godwin, Austen, Scott, and others. The myth in question, which Raymond Hilliard calls "the myth of persecution and reparation," serves as a major vehicle for the early novel's preoccupation with the "mother," a mythic figure distinct from the historical mother or from the mother as she is represented in eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century maternal ideology. Hilliard argues that the myth of persecution and reparation derives from the ropos of female sacrifice in the romance tradition, and shows that this topos is central to several kinds of novels-realist, Gothic, Jacobin, feminist, and historical. Hilliard contends that the narrative of persecution and reparation anticipates the twentieth-century maternal myth associated with the work of Melanie Klein and other "relational model" psychoanalytic theorists, and he thus also examines the psychosexual significance of the "mother." Hilliard explores the relation of psychosexual themes to social representations, and delineates a new theory of plot-both tragic and comic plots- in the early novel.

The Pagan in the Pulpit pits a gifted atheist against a formidable fundamentalist. The prize for which they mount an epic battle is the atheists wife, a captivating but elusive woman driven toward rebellion by her husbands lack of faith. Rob Fairly is the atheist filled with passion for his wife and virtuoso talents as a writer. Todd Holyfield (also known as Todd Almighty) is the madly smitten pastor who pursues the enigmatic wife. The wife is Lisa Fairly, who considers him the perfect pastor to replace the saintly but monotonous sermonizer fired from her church. As Lisa grows more hypnotized with Todd, her husband has his own temptations. One of them is Kim, an irresistible Confucian, and the other one is Valerie, an inspiring Wiccan. Blending satire with a search for deeper faith, The Pagan in the Pulpit trains a laser-like psychology on fundamentalism. Aiming at a rampant problem in America and worldwide, Rob uses his ingenious talents to oppose the pastors fundamentalism and prevent his wifes seduction. Showing greater sympathy than her husband, Lisa finds a wiser tolerance than she expected in her search for faith while battling with herself, her husband, and her pastor to preserve her marriage. Rich in wit and irony, elegant style, and searing love, the novel makes the battle of its central characters a microcosm of our modern world. In summary, The Pagan in the Pulpit uses its irreverence to honor faith while freeing what we love from fundamentalism and seduction.
