The Paris Review: Feminize Your Canon

For those curious to expand their reading by learning about authors whose works were unjustly overlooked in their day, the famous literary magazine The Paris Review has something that may be just the thing. "Feminize Your Canon," the magazine's monthly column that launched in June 2018, "explores the lives of underrated and under-read female authors." The column opened with an examination of Olivia Manning, a twentieth-century British novelist who has been called "artistically ahead of her time" and wrote prolifically despite never quite achieving the success that she yearned for during her lifetime. Most recently, "Feminize Your Canon" turned its lens to Eleanor Dark, an Australian author whose "startling" and "challenging" 1934 novel Prelude to Christopher was hailed by critics in her native country and the UK, yet was refused publication in the US. Other authors discussed by this intriguing column include Anna Kavan, Kamala Markandaya, Violet Trefusis, and Rosario Castellanos. "Feminize Your Canon" is written by Emma Garman.
