This phenomenal book is long, but requires a thoughtful reading, because what was evident to Ann Douglas concerning the 19th century in America is exacerbated today. I have written extensively on the topic from a Catholic perspective (feminine-genius. com) but will have to tweak many of my assumptions - beginning with the misguided notion that "feminisation of culture was a 20th century project. By the turn of that century, it was long underway-perhaps irreversibly so!

This book might as well be titled The Sentimentilization of American Culture because what author Ann Douglas identifies is not a promotion of genuine feminine virtues but a sad parody of them as found in Victorian America's literature and religious culture. Sentimentality is inherently nostalgic and anti-intellectual, and its embrace by any society inevitably results in a loss of that society's manly virtues and a debilitating fascination with shallow ideals.

The Feminization of American Cultureseeks to explain the values prevalent in today's popular culture by tracing them back to their roots in Victorian times. Feminist scholar Ann Douglas examines the best-selling novels and magazines of the day to show how women exploited their feminine image and idealized the very qualities that kept them powerless: timidity, piety, narcissism, and a disdain for competition.

This phenomenal book is long, but requires a thoughtful reading, because what was evident to Ann Douglas concerning the 19th century in America is exacerbated today. I have written extensively on the topic from a Catholic perspective (feminine-genius.com) but will have to tweak many of my assumptions -- beginning with the misguided notion that "feminisation of culture was a 20th century project." By the turn of that century, it was long underway--perhaps irreversibly so!

One can only imagine the work that has gone into this staggering piece of intellectual history - whose axis is the unforeseeable and fateful rise of the female public in American intellectual life, and contemporaneously the collapse of the old, muscular style of Protestant religiosity and intellect - from the kind and number of sources the author uses. She has apparently trawled through reams and piles of obscure newspapers and magazines, familiarized herself with writing most of us would be glad to avoid, learned to distinguish the various strands of an intellectual and publishing life which is, to modern America, as alien as imperial China or early Sumer. The result is tremendous: not only a resurrection of a past age that does it honour and justice (if anything, one seems to perceive, in this female scholar, a certain sympathy - even nostalgia - for the utra-male, activist, iron-faced world of the old Puritan thinkers, post-Jonathan Edwards and his likes), but a flood of light on the origins of our (not exclusively American) world and society. This simply cannot be praised too much; future historians will not be able to prescind from it.

This is foremost a history, and has a focus rather more restricted than its title would suggest, surveying the careers and lives of thirty women and thirty (male) ministers involved in the "feminization" of northeastern Victorian America. The author convinced me in arguing for the significance of said feminization, but I felt burdened by all the biographical minutiae. One has to ignore reams of trivia to grasp the larger themes hinted at in the titles of the chapters (e.g., "The Escape From History," "The Domestication of Death). Where the author breaks the tedium with an impassioned commentary, she seems to be writing a different book altogether. But Douglas's treatment of the theme is original and even-handed, and her short biography of Margaret Fuller compensates for the tiresome church histories.

quick service, Would do again Thank You AAAAAAAA++++++

This book was a revelation to me.
It was also a bit more than I could chew, and though I did finish the book, I wish now that I had held on to it to refer to later. I agree with an earlier comment that the bio of Margaret Fuller is a great perk to this volume.
If you read this book, and then observe the shenanigans of the press and street talk surrounding Hillary and the 2008 election, you'll have a much clearer picture of what is driving the misogynystic views of so many women in this country today. I think the book's premise also helps explain how characters counter to the advancement of women such as Ann Coulter or Phyllis Schlafly come about, and particularly, why they have such a devoted following among other women.
The book is extremely complex and unravels like a mystery novel. It was obvious to me in just a few pages that it would require my full attention. It is not easy reading, but it is important reading.

Bought this book as a spinoff to a seminar hoping for some insight into a complex subject. The common cause made between ineffectual clergy of the late 18th century and American women was interesting, but then the author lost herself (and her theme) in her exhausting review of obscure, forgettable literature. The phrase "deadly dull" comes to mind.

The book is more notable for what it does not address than for what it does.

I was bored. Hard to keep going.
