Aphra Speaks was a series on WBAI wherein the editors of Aphra: The Feminist Literary Magazine discuss authors and literature. On the previous episode, broadcast in November 1972, the Aphra editors discussed Kate Chopin's The Awakening and Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth, asking why feminists have been attracted to these novels. In this program, they ask the same question about two 19th century novels: Ivan Goncharov's Oblomov and George Eliot's Middlemarch. The editors in this program are Elizabeth Fisher, Ellen Harold, Margaret Lamb, and Gerry Sachs. Produced by Ann Snitow.
