Abstract

At first sight, Weeds (1923) by Edith Summers Kelley (1884-1956) portrays the misfortunes of Judith Pippinger Blackford, a poor sharecropper’s wife in rural - tobacco setting - at the turn of the twentieth century. However, beneath the surface lies a plea for the control and mastery of one’s own life both as a woman and as a mother. Such a subversive theory truly hides its game within the intricacies of the novel.
