"A feminist classic."—Judith Shulevitz, New York Times Book Review

“A pivotal book, one of those after which we will never think the same again.”—Carolyn G. Heilbrun, Washington Post Book World

A pathbreaking book of literary criticism is now reissued with a new introduction by Lisa Appignanesi that speaks to how The Madwoman in the Attic set the groundwork for subsequent generations of scholars writing about women writers, and why the book still feels fresh some four decades later.

Sandra M. Gilbert is distinguished professor of English emerita at the University of California, Davis. Susan Gubar is distinguished emerita professor of English and women’s studies at Indiana University. Together, they were awarded the Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award of the National Book Critics Circle. Lisa Appignanesi is the chair of the Royal Society of Literature.
