520    In a bold and sweeping reevaluation of the past two 
       centuries of women's writing, At Home in the World argues 
       that this body of work has been defined less by domestic 
       concerns than by an active engagement with the most 
       pressing issues of public life: from class and religious 
       divisions, slavery, warfare, and labor unrest to democracy,
       tyranny, globalism, and the clash of cultures. In this new
       literary history, Maria DiBattista and Deborah Epstein 
       Nord contend that even the most seemingly traditional 
       works by British, American, and other English-language 
       women writers redefine the domestic sphere in ways that 
       incorporate the concerns of public life, allowing 
       characters and authors alike to forge new, emancipatory 
       narratives. The book explores works by a wide range of 
       writers, including canonical figures such as Jane Austen, 
       Charlotte Bronte, George Eliot, Harriet Jacobs, Edith 
       Wharton, Virginia Woolf, Willa Cather, Gertrude Stein, and
       Toni Morrison; neglected or marginalized writers like Mary
       Antin, Tess Slesinger, and Martha Gellhorn; and recent and
       contemporary figures, including Nadine Gordimer, Anita 
       Desai, Edwidge Danticat, and Jhumpa Lahiri. DiBattista and
       Nord show how these writers dramatize tensions between 
       home and the wider world through recurrent themes of 
       sailing forth, escape, exploration, dissent, and 
       emigration. Throughout, the book uncovers the undervalued 
       public concerns of women writers who ventured into ever-
       wider geographical, cultural, and political territories, 
       forging new definitions of what it means to create a home 
       in the world. The result is an enlightening 
       reinterpretation of women's writing from the early 
       nineteenth century to the present day.
