The Oxford Guide to British Women Writers. Edited by Joanne Shattock. Oxford and New York : Oxford University Press, 1993.

The Oxford Guide to British Women Writers contains entries for over 400 women writers in a wide variety of genres. Those include novels, travel writing, poetry, theater, children's books, cook books and religious writings. The authors are "women whose reputations were established before the early 1980s." The editor broadly defines "British," so there are entries for those born elsewhere but whose careers were in an important part tied to Britain. The editor intends each entry to provide "an overview of a particular writer, an indication of her major publications and the scope of her work ..." There are also entries for various literary forms.
