Eleven original essays offer a variety of perspectives on the changing ways in which women's friendships have been viewed. The contributors discuss the fundamental values of women's friendships and communication in order to understand the many parallels and intersections between literature and life. This anthology suggests that women's friendships are to be greatly valued—indeed treasured —as significant parts of women's lives.
