Amy Hi, I'm late to seeing this list since I just joined. I wanted to contribute that Madwoman in the Attic is actually by Susan Gubar AND Sandra Gilbert. I met Susan Gubar about a year ago and might be working with her in graduate school next year. The book is MUST reading for anyone interested in Ninteenth Century literature.
