Abstract:By marking out a pattern of retreat in the works of American female writers---Fanny Fern, Elizabeth Stoddard, Jessie Fauset, and Dorothy Parker---who dramatize movement across social spaces, this dissertation characterizes mid-nineteenth and early twentieth century female movement into the public sphere as unconfident, arguing that we can position their retreats as progressive through reading resistance to capitalism as motivating them.
