Lesbian Images: Essays

'“Rule . . . projects a sense of personal engagement which enhances . . . her thoughtful, unpretentious literary judgments. Her subject is relationships between women in modern literature, ranging from the frankly sexual to the less explicitly defined. . . . Her virtues are empirical, concrete virtues: fair-mindedness, sense of proportion, a feeling for the actual texture of a book . . . Her main achievement is making you want to read every book she discusses . . . It’s a certain tribute to Rule’s skill that one is never tempted to think the subject itself thin or artificial.” —Kirkus Reviews “[Jane Rule was an] extraordinary writer—perhaps the most significant lesbian fiction writer of the 20th century.” —Katherine V. Forrest, author of Curious Wine'
