505 0  Reading Little women -- Women and the new cultural 
       landscape of the Gilded Age -- Young women's ways of 
       reading -- (Reading as) a family affair : the Hamiltons of
       Fort Wayne -- Reading and ambition : M. Carey Thomas and 
       female heroism -- Working her way through culture : Jane 
       Addams and literature's dual legacy -- Hull-House as a

       B. Wells, race, literature, and politics. 
520    In a compelling approach structured as theme and 
       variations, the author offers insightful profiles of a 
       number of accomplished women born in Americas Gilded Age 
       who lost and found themselves in books, and worked out a 
       new life purpose around them. Some women, like Edith and 
       Alice Hamilton, M. Carey Thomas, and Jane Addams, grew up 
       in households filled with books, while less privileged 
       women found alternative routes to expressive literacy. 
       Jewish immigrants Hilda Satt Polacheck, Rose Cohen, and 
       Mary Antin acquired new identities in the English-language
       books they found in settlement houses and libraries, while
       African Americans like Ida B. Wells relied mainly on 
       institutions of their own creation, even as they sought to
       develop a literature of their own. It is the author's 
       contribution to show that however the skill of reading was
       acquired, under the right circumstances, adolescent 
       reading was truly transformative in constructing female 
       identity, stirring imaginations, and fostering ambition. 
       With Little Women's Jo March often serving as a youthful 
       model of independence, girls and young women created 
       communities of learning, imagination, and emotional 
       connection around literary activities in ways that helped 
       them imagine, and later attain, public identities. Reading
       themselves into quest plots and into male as well as 
       female roles, these young women went on to create an 
       unparalleled record of achievement as intellectuals, 
       educators, and social reformers. This study reveals the 
       centrality of the eras culture of reading and sheds new 
       light on these women's Progressive-Era careers.
