Struggle, Sorrow, and Joy: Women in White Ethnic American Literature.
Chapin, Helen Geracimos
The literature of Polish, Greek and Italian American women has been largely neglected in the American literary tradition. Through an analysis of female characters in a number of white ethnic autobiographical novels, this paper stresses the importance of an awareness of women's struggles which coincide with immigration history. It also points out the movement of women in literature from the struggle for survival toward the achievement of self-actualization. (MK)
