Description

Women poets in nineteenth-century France made important contributions to major stylistic innovations and many were prominent in their lifetime, yet only a few are known today, and nearly all have been unavailable in English translation. Of the fourteen poets in this anthology some were wealthy, others struggled in poverty; some were socially conventional, others were cynical or defiant. Their poems range widely in style and idea, from Romantic to Parnassian to symbolist.

Review quote

"The selections in the volume are excellent and . . . will appeal to contemporary tastes. Indeed, most of the translations represent the most careful, critical reading they have ever received." --Marilyn Gaddis Rose, Binghamton University

"This well-documented bilingual anthology, with a wide range of translation styles, is a first-rate pedagogical tool. Throughout, Schultz directs the reader towards the finest recent scholarship in the field (Adrianna Paliyenko, Aimee Boutin, Wendy Greenberg), and the current resurgence of academic interest in these writers suggests that the much-needed consideration of the nineteenth-century canon, with all the benefits that brings to both teaching and research, is well underway." --David Evans, University of St. Andrews

About Gretchen Schultz

Gretchen Schultz, author of The Gendered Lyric: Subjectivity and Difference in Nineteenth-Century French Poetry, provides literary history and biographical notes to show the crucial role women played in nineteenth-century French poetry and to explain why they were criticized and--in the creation of the canon--often eclipsed.
