This is an enlarged edition of An Encyclopedia of British Women Writers published by Garland in 1988. The number of entries has been increased by half again as much (from 400 to 600), and many, if not all, of the original articles have been revised or reworked. Although most of the entries are for British women writers from the eighteenth century to the present, an effort was made to include women writers of the medieval and Renaissance periods as well. The preface addresses the question of who is to be considered "British," for place of birth is not the only criterion. Those born elsewhere but residing in Great Britain for a considerable amount of time, those born in other countries of the British Commonwealth who emigrated to Great Britain, and those born in Great Britain who eventually emigrated to the U.S. are all included.
