      modernist novel to recuperate female voice and "consciousness." If Fiedler rightly sees feminine "sensibility" or the female "mouthpiece" (re)valorized in modernist narrative, why is it that women writers were not accorded "first importance" in modernism either in the period of its development or in the retrospective light of conventional literary.   The urgency of this need for new devices, and the ingenuity with which modernist writers addressed it, made the s one of the most inventive and successful decades in the history of literature. Whether this achievement ultimately offers much consolation for the losses of the First World War – or even any – is another question.

        Although there are many more women throughout history who have proven to be powerful authors, this list is limited to those who are living, with a focus on personal narrative and fiction writers Author: Avril David.   While women writers were pushing traditional boundaries of “women's fiction,” women were also reshaping the form and content of the theater, often in response to social changes. Susan Glaspell wrote both fiction and drama, most of which involve women searching for the meaning of life isolated from success, money, or even : Wendy Martin, Sharon Becker.

      She has published widely on modernist writers, narrative, and cultural history, and is the author of Virginia Woolf, the Intellectual, and the Public Sphere (). The 20th century witnessed several major cultural movements, including modernism, anti-modernism, and postmodernism. These and other means of understanding and perceiving the world shaped the literature of that era and, with the rise of feminism, resulted in a particularly rich body of literature by women writers. This reference includes alphabetically arranged entries on 58 British women 3/5(1).

A first important observation to be made is that the short story as a genre remains largely neglected in the greater part of book-length studies on literary modernism, even in the more recent : Mathijs Duyck.Modernism, in general, reflected a departure from traditional forms of art, religion, philosophy, social organization, and daily life which modernist artists felt had become outdated in the new environments of an emerging industrialized world.
