Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungRenee Winegarten probes intriguingly subtle equivocations revealed by six highly gifted fascinating French women writers who were deeply involved in the political life of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Ostensibly denied any public political role, they paid lip service to the conventional pieties and went their own way, ranging widely though the political specturm. "A literary triumph." Hilton Kramer.
PortraitRenee Winegarten has written widely on French literature, including Simone de Beauvoir: A Critical View; Madame de Stael; The Double Life of George Sand; and Writers and Revolution. She lives and writes in England.
PressestimmenOne of the most elegant and beguiling social historians now writing...full of colorful details and fascinating insights.--Brooke Allen
