About this product
- DescriptionSince Barbara Kingsolver published The Bean Trees in 1988, her work has been of great interest to readers-first, American readers; then British and South African readers; and finally to readers the world over. With incredible speed, Kingsolver became one of the best-kwn United States writers, a person who collected hors and awards as if she were a much more mature literary producer. From the beginning Kingsolver touched an elbow of keen interest in her readers: hers was the voice of world awareness, a conscientious voice that demanded attention for the narratives of the disadvantaged, the politically troubled, the humanly silenced. By paying special attention to her n-fiction (essays and books), this new study by rewned literary critic Linda Wagner-Martin highlights the way Kingsolver has become a kind of public intellectual, particularly in the 21st century. It provides fresh readings of each of her vels, stories, and poems.
- Author BiographyLinda Wagner-Martin is Hanes Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA. Her many books include Sylvia Plath: A Biography (1987) and Sylvia Plath: A Literary Life (2nd edition, 2003).
