Transcript "Some think of education as a receiving process. You buy a bill of goods, you write it down, you have it and it's yours forever. But it's not really yours in any way that is going to make a dent in your life." And dents are made with books like Nikki Giovanni's Gemini, June Arnold's Sister Gin and Gail Godwin's The Odd Woman. "I want books to be things that will jolt you into some- thing-not necessarily anger or frustration-but something that will have an impact. I want them to make a difference on your life. And they must be good novelistically. We should be able to discuss style and be critical. "The book that got the most negative response in class was Gemini, (printed in 1972) an autobiographical work by Nikki Giovanni, a Black writer. There is a lot in it about hatred towards whites and hatred towards Jews, as Jews. People were literally slapping their books on the table and asking, 'Why do we have to read this? What's the point?' "Well, it's interesting to see how people define themselves. That's how Giovanni defined herself at that particular time. I went through her poems chronologically and typed them up to present the class with some sense of a person who was moving, who was not the same as when she wrote the book." ^o Cw*v<L*\°; r/' k f»«. -r**/aaA<, &W>u)»i &*> uJifctt cxK**ijy i70&Wetfc|y<l RESTAURANT CUISINE FRANCAISE COCKTAILS • LUNCH AND DINNER • SUNDAYS — ST.

Mazow, an avid reader, consciously chooses her class reading list in her belief that education should be an awakening experience. Diversity is very important to Mazow. Her fall reading list for her women writers course at the XC includes 19th century works, such as Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley, Mary Ann Evans' (alias George Eliot) Mill On The Floss and Cran ford-about a little village made up mainly of spin- sters--by Elizabeth Gaskell. "Ellen Moers, in her Literary Women, points out that women writers in the 19th-- and even 18th-century, were reading each other. For each major writer there are one or two minor women writers who influenced them. Mary Grunten, for example, who wrote a book called Self Control, had a great influence on Jane Austen. "One of the things I'm finding out," says Mazow, "is that there are hundreds of books by women that haven't been read. The Feminist Press, for one, is picking up on many that are out of print or that were never printed." From the numbers of women attending classes like Mazow's on women's literature, it is apparent that women of today are combining their search for a sense of tradition with themselves as women. their introspective search, to gain a more distinct view of "Contemporary women writers have received negative criticism," says Mazow, "because some of their fiction has an autobiographical component- and so-called 'confessionalism' has a bad name. "A lot of autobiographies are being re-discovered because they were not considered serious literature. I would like to teach a class of just women's autobiographies because I think one gets a strong sense of our struggle to create and express ourselves from these works. "There is a tremendous tradition of women's literature- it's such a rich, rich field. As women, we owe it to ourselves to look at our own history as expressed through literature."
