Jane Addams, a Writer's Lifeis an expansive, revealing, and refreshing re-examination of the renowned reformer .

Jane Addams, a Writer's Lifeis an expansive, revealing, and refreshing re-examination of the renowned reformer as an imaginative writer. Jane Addams is best known for her groundbreaking social work at Hull-House, the force of her efforts toward Progressive political and social reform, and the bravery of her commitment to pacifism, for which she received the Nobel Peace Prize. Here, Joslin moves beyond this history to present Addams as a literary figure. As Joslin pursues the argument that Addams's power as a public figure stemmed from the success of her books and essays, Addams herself emerges as a literary woman.

Urbana: University of Illinois Press, 2004. Jane Addams crossed boundaries repeatedly. Addams wrote ten books, collaborated on three, and published essays in magazines from Ladies 'Home Journal to The Crisis.

Joslin's book enables us to appreciate how essential reading and writing were to Addams's understanding of life and, more importantly, how much the persuasive power of her ideas is inseparable from the eloquence of her literary expression

From there, Joslin traces Addams's style from her early collaborative works, Philanthropy and Social Progress and Hull-House Maps and Papers, influenced by Florence Kelley, to her modernist and experimental last books, The Second Twenty Years at Hull-House and My Friend, Julia Lathrop, placing Addams in the context of other Chicago writers, including Theodore Dreiser, Upton Sinclair, Harriet Monroe, Frank Norris and James T.
