that is the only four authors your teacher is giving voice to? I wil say that Sula and The Awakening are both very good.
Hopefully you will also touch on
The Yellow Wallpaper
The Blank Page
the poetry of Dorothy Parker
I just dashed off this quick list as one of my first post. My textbook is The Norton Anthology of Literature By Women, and we are reading Mary Wollstonecraft, Aemilia Lanyer, Mary Cavendish, and many others. I loved The Yellow Wallpaper, and The Blank Page. Thanks for your interest!
