Master Smart Woman
A film by Jane Morrison in collaboration with photographer Peter Namuth
1984, 28 minutes, Color, 16mm/DVD
Order No. W99310
From the award-winning director of THE WHITE HERON and THE TWO WORLDS OF ANGELITA, this loving portrait is a much deserved re-evaluation of Sarah Orne Jewett's contribution to American literature. Recently rediscovered by feminist literary scholars, Jewett was a fiercely independent woman, a critically acclaimed 19th century author, and an important role model for a generation of women writers.

    "A beautiful film portrait of the 19th century feminist writer...the visual composition invites repeated viewings. Highly recommended for all libraries."

    "A revealing and touching view of Jewett and the life-style of her era."
