Legacy is the official journal of the Society for the Study of American Women Writers. It is the only journal to focus specifically on American women's writing from the seventeenth through the early twentieth century. Each issue's articles cover a wide range of topics: examinations of the works of individual authors; genre studies; analyses of race, ethnicity, gender, class, and sexualities in women's literature; and historical and material cultural issues pertinent to women's lives and literary works. In addition, Legacy regularly publishes profiles of lesser-known or newly recovered authors, reprints of primary works in all genres, and book reviews covering current scholarship in the field.
Back issues are now available for purchase online!  To see the list of available issues, click on either the "Individual" or "Institution" option box above and select "Single Issue".  (If the issue you want isn't listed, it may still be available for order by phone, so please call.)
