WOMEN AND LITERATURE, Texas

Hey Guys,

A quick a blurb 🙂 …

Texas has a rich literary tradition, identified most frequently with the Anglo men writers of the early to middle twentieth century who dealt eloquently and dramatically with the birth of the republic, the efflorescence of the range cattle industry, and the discovery of oil.

Women, however, in spite of being ignored by the Mystique, played a crucial role in the development of Texas culture, both during the nineteenth century and afterward. Their role as homemakers and guardians of morals and culture on the frontier is undeniable, and female pioneers’ lives apparently were not as romantic or dramatic as those of their male counterparts. Understandably, frontier women also succumbed to loneliness and despair more frequently than men did, and their mortality rate was probably higher. In part because they were excluded from the Mystique, the literature that Texas women have produced differs dramatically from that of Texas men.
