A History of Women's Writing in France

£9.99

Product description

This volume is the first historical introduction to women's writing in France from the sixth century to the present day. Specially-commissioned essays by leading scholars provide the first introduction in English to the wealth and diversity of French women writers, offering new readings and new perspectives. The volume as a whole offers a cohesive history of women's writing which has sometimes been obscured by the canonisation of a small feminine elite. Each chapter focuses on a given period and a range of writers, taking account of prevailing sexual ideologies and women's activities in, or their relation to, the social, political, economic and cultural surroundings. Complemented by an extensive bibliography of primary and secondary works and a biographical guide to more than one hundred and fifty women writers, it represents an invaluable resource for those wishing to discover or extend their knowledge of French literature written by women.
The softback cover is in good condition with only very light shelf wear. The binding is tight - the book may be unread. The pages are clean and unmarked.
