Book Description

Les Femmes et la tradition littéraire, a two-part anthology, offers a sweeping historical overview of women’s literature in France from the twelfth century to the present. Generously illustrated and richly annotated, it presents writers such as Hélisenne de Crenne, Gabrielle de Villeneuve, Louise Ackermann and Renée Vivien along with more familiar figures including Labé, Lafayette, Sand, Beauvoir, Colette and Duras. In addition to novels, short stories and poetry, it features fairy tales, sentimental and philosophical letters, feminist political and literary manifestos and some medieval and Renaissance selections appearing for the first time in modern French.

Les femmes et la tradition littéraire, anthologie en deux parties, offre un vaste tableau historique de la littérature féminine en France du XIIe siècle à nos jours. Enrichie de nombreuses illustrations et de commentaires critiques, elle présente des écrivaines telles que Hélisenne de Crenne, Gabrielle de Villeneuve, Louise Ackermann et Renée Vivien aussi bien que des auteurs plus connues comme Labé, Lafayette, Sand, Beauvoir, Colette et Duras. Outre des extraits de romans, des nouvelles et des poèmes, elle comprend des contes de fées, des lettres sentimentales et philosophiques, des manifestes politiques et littéraires et des textes du Moyen Âge et de la Renaissance paraissant pour la première fois en français moderne.

“A marvelous work . . . an enduring contribution to women’s studies. It is informative in its encyclopedic shape and in its writing has the aura and enthusiasm of a life-work celebrating the cause of the woman writer. The book will be an event in what it offers as a history and an overview of écriture féminine by women.”—Tom Conley, Harvard University

“An important contribution . . . a carefully planned and well-executed anthology. Excellent.”—Elaine Marks, University of Wisconsin, Madison
“A superb volume that brings together the best of French literature by women and American scholarship about women’s literature. I am very happy to give this project my warmest, most enthusiastic recommendation.”—Marilyn Schuster, Smith College
