The Distaff and the Staff: Stereotypes and Archetypes of the Older Woman in Representative Modern Literature.
Kehl, D. G.
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v26 n1 p1-12 1988
Notes that much modern fiction and poetry cogently exposes demeaning stereotypes. Discusses references to 25 representative poems and nine works of fiction by 35 modern authors to demonstrate that the elderly woman often survives with dignity in a society often insensitive to her plight and that she often ages with grace.
