Lurking Feminism explores Edith Wharton's legacy as a writer of supernatural fiction through her subversive use of the ghost story to express feminist concerns. Her stories protest the domination of patriarchal structures and language. Moreover, they probe the complexities facing both men and women in defining gender roles and experiencing sexuality, in overcoming power struggles in relationships, and in resolving internal conflicts between debilitating, but often safe, attitudes and behaviors, and the desire for growth.

"Dyman introduces, for the first time in one book, a clustering of the ghost tales to trace the feminist sensibility implicit but usually veiled in Edith Wharton's prolific corpus of fiction. Through fresh readings of the individual tales, Dyman traces Wharton's emergence 'from a male-centered tradition...to produce a dual text...which breaks the bonds of the dominant language' and thus continues the brilliant advance in reading Edith Wharton since the opening of the writer's Yale papers in 1968."
