Forty years after their first groundbreaking work of feminist literary theory, The Madwoman in the Attic, these award-winning collaborators map the literary history of feminism’s second wave. From its stirrings in the midcentury—when Sylvia Plath, Betty Friedan, and Joan Didion found their voices and Diane di Prima, Lorraine Hansberry, and Audre Lorde discovered community in rebellion—to a resurgence in the new millennium in the writings, Susan M. Gilbert and Susan Gubar trace the evolution of feminist literature. Still Mad is their remarkable account of the contemporary women’s movement told through the lives and works of the literary women who shaped it.
