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.
