The Aunt Lute Anthology of U.S. Women Writers, Vol 1 

17th and 19th Centuries

Edited by Lisa Maria Hogeland and Mary Klages

Volume One of The Aunt Lute Anthology of U.S. Women Writers includes over three hundred selections and spans three centuries of women's writings in the U.S. From criminal confessions to politic pamphlets to fiction, plays, poetry, and memoirs, these pages are filled with words of women who embody the complex history of this nation.

The Aunt Lute Anthology of U.S. Women Writers, Vol 2

20th and 21st Centuries

Edited by Lisa Maria Hogeland and Shay Brawn

The story of U.S. literature in the twentieth century is in many ways the story of the hard won emergence of women's voices—all kinds of women's voices—into print. The Aunt Lute Anthology of U.S. Women Writers, Volume Two is an unprecedented effort to capture, in all its scope and variety, the extraordinary results of that florescence.


This wide-ranging, compelling anthology of well-known, lesser-known and virtually unknown U.S. women writers shows that U.S. women have participated vigorously and imaginatively in public discourse from the beginning. It will be invaluable for students, teachers, and scholars of women writers and of American literature across the board.

This anthology adds new dimensions to our sense of women's contributions to American culture and helps us to understand our own history in more complex ways… A welcome contribution to American social, intellectual, cultural and literary histories.
