Short description: »And Write She Did« stands out as the first in-depth study of the literary relation between Virginia Woolf and Alice Munro. This attentive, subtle, and accessible comparative analysis not only unlocks fresh perspectives on the two authors’ negotiation of the conditions in which women’s literary creativity can blossom. Located at the intersection of comparative criticism, studies of female artist figures in literature, and research on women’s writing and literary history, the book also contributes to these fields in innovative ways. Notably, Mendez argues for a new understanding of the gendered power relations shaping women’s writing, thus illustrating how women’s participation in cultural production can be theorized and promoted from a twenty-first-century perspective. Moreover, in developing the concept of »ethical affiliation «, this book is significant as an original and energizing intervention in the comparative study of literary relationships.
