Explores the relationship between copyright laws and women's writing in nineteenth-century America.In American Women Authors and Literary Property, 1822-1869, Homestead explores how copyright and married women's property laws shaped the careers of popular American women authors. Five case studies show how copyright and coverture converged to both foster and constrain women authors in nineteenth-century America.In American Women Authors and Literary Property, 1822-1869, Homestead explores how copyright and married women's property laws shaped the careers of popular American women authors. Five case studies show how copyright and coverture converged to both foster and constrain women authors in nineteenth-century America.Through an exploration of women authors' engagements with copyright and married women's property laws, American Women Authors and Literary Property, 1822-1869, revises nineteenth-century American literary history, making women's authorship and copyright law central. Using case studies of five popular fiction writers - Catharine Sedgwick, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Fanny Fern, Augusta Evans, and Mary Virginia Terhune - Homestead shows how the convergence of copyright and coverture both fostered and constrained white women's agency as authors. Women authors exploited their status as nonproprietary subjects to advantage by adapting themselves to a copyright law that privileged readers'access to literature over authors' property rights. Homestead's inclusion of the Confederacy in this work sheds light on the centrality of copyright to nineteenth-century American nationalisms and on the strikingly different construction of author reader relations under U.S. and Confederate copyright laws.Introduction: 'lady-writers' and 'copyright, authors, and authorship' in nineteenth-century America, 1. Authors, wives, slaves: coverture, copyright, and authorial dispossession, 1831-1869, 2. Suited to the market: Catharine Sedgwick, female authorship, and the literary property debates, 1822-1842, 3. When I can read my title clear: Harriet Beecher Stowe and the Stowe v. Thomas Copyright Infringement case (1853), 4. Every body sees the theft: Fanny Fern and periodical reprinting in the 1850s, 5. A 'rank rebel' lady and her literary property: Augusta Jane Evans and copyright, the Civil War and after, 1861-1868, , Epilogue. Belford v. Scriber (1892) and the ghost of Mary Virginia Terhune's Phemie's Temptation (1869), or, the lessons of the 'lady-writers' of the 1820's through the 1860s for literary history and twenty-first-century copyright law.Review of the hardback: 'With American Women Authors and Literary Property, 1822-1869, scholarship on relationships among authorship, copyright, the state and the status of literature in America takes a major step forward. Melissa Homestead's beautifully researched, elegantly written study traces the very different ways in which five successful white women writers manoeuvred within coverture - which applied to women only - and economic and legal circumstances experienced by all antebellum American writers. Homestead not only shows how essential gender is to any account of American literary history worth its salt, she models the kind of intensive historical research required for understanding how property rights, gender and race played out in individual writers' work and lives.' Sandra A. Zagarell, Longman Professor of English, Oberlin CollegeReview of the hardback: 'Although a self-styled act of 'literary recovery,'Melissa Homestead's American Women Authors and Literary Property, 1822-1869 seems to me actually nothing less than a revisionary literary history of the heyday of women's writing - and the conditions underlying and regulating its composition and circulation - in the United States. Based on a perspective reading of nineteenth-century copyright as a central agency in the formation of the fi
