The Hysteric's Revenge: French Women Writers at the Fin de Siecle
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThe Hysteric's Revenge considers fin-de-siA)cle French women writers in the context of prevailing cultural anxieties about female intellect. During the years that overlap between the fin-de-siA)cle and the Belle Apoque, women began to write in record numbers, due to a number of factors including educational reforms and demographic shifts. This trend terrified many male literary critics, who described it as the acrisis of women's writinga in a series of efforts to circumscribe the perceived problem. Such critics frequently linked women's writing to sexual depravity.
