Her woman artist stories are particularly noteworthy. These stories alone make her one of the most important women writers of the nineteenth century, in my view. She explores what it was like to be a serious woman author/artist in the nineteenth century, combating men's prejudices and women's own guilt and fears about treading on a male realm. 9 people found this helpful.

Constance Fenimore Woolson (b. 1840–d. In Women Artists, Women Exiles: Miss Grief and Other Stories. 1894) was considered the most accomplished American woman writer of the late 19th century, yet her reputation quickly faded after her death. Often compared to Henry James and George Eliot, she was nonetheless grouped with other women writers who were excluded from the American literary canon as it formed in the early 20th century. Woolson was born in Claremont, New Hampshire, but moved with her parents to Cleveland, Ohio, when she was still a baby. New Brunswick, NJ: Rutgers University Press, 1988.
