This is an important contribution to scholarship on late nineteenth-century American women writers. Hausmann describes how female characters in literary environments operate literally and symbolically to reveal conceptual complexities that challenge traditional notions about women and how their attitudes toward cultural and social influences shape women's lives. This work examines the use of spatial imagery by three nineteenth-century New England regionalist authors, Mary E. Wilkins Freeman, Sarah Orne Jewett, and Rose Terry Cooke. In each of the works examined, spatial imagery is used to explore how women negotiate feminist issues. Looking at texts through the lens of spatial imagery is constructive given the centrality of spatial imagery in feminist literature and the way space is often gendered. As a particular image, parabolic space allows for complexity and resists dichotomous oversimplification. This way of reading is particularly suited to New England regionalism, with its emphasis on small settings and larger issues.
