It focuses on strategies of women’s writing as embodied in Smith’s protagonist, Pompey Casmilus. In a period in which the category of “woman writer” was firmly associated with middlebrow sentimentality, Smith explores formal and material constraints on women as authors of fiction. In its diagnosis of the publishing world, the segregation of readerly tastes, and the constraints of established generic forms, <em>Novel on Yellow Paper</em> confronts the modern(ist) predicament of female authorship in novel ways.</p> Ingo Berensmeyer Copyright (c) 2020 Ingo Berensmeyer http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0 https://www.authorship.ugent.be/article/view/17719 Sat, 27 Feb 2021 18:28:55 +0100 Mingchao Mao, Friedrich Hebbels Arbeit an Schiller.
