French Women Writers Summary


French Women Writers by Edited by Eva Martin Sartori

Marie de France, Mme. De Sevigne, and Mme. De Lafayette achieved international reputations during periods when women in other European countries were able to write only letters, translations, religious tracts, and miscellaneous fragments. There were obstacles, but French women writers were more or less sustained and empowered by the French culture. Often unconventional in their personal lives and occupied with careers besides writing-as educators, painters, actresses, preachers, salon hostesses, labor organizers-these women did not wait for Simone de Beauvoir to tell them to make existential choices and have "projects in the world."

French Women Writers describes the lives and careers of fifty-two literary figures from the twelfth century to the late twentieth. All the contributors are recognized authorities. Some of their subjects, like Colette and George Sand, are celebrated, and others are just now gaining critical notice. From Christine de Pizan and Marguerite de Navarre to Rachilde and Helene Cixous, from Louise Labe to Marguerite Duras-these women speak through the centuries to issues of gender, sexuality, and language.

French Women Writers now becomes widely available in this Bison Book edition.
