History of Women's Writing in France by Sonya Stephens
Book DescriptionThis volume was the first historical introduction to women's writing in France from the sixth century to the present day. Specially-commissioned essays by leading scholars provide an introduction in English to the wealth and diversity of French women writers, offering fascinating readings and perspectives. The volume as a whole offers a cohesive history of women's writing which has sometimes been obscured by the canonisation of a small feminine elite. Each chapter focuses on a given period and a range of writers, taking account of prevailing sexual ideologies and women's activities in, or their relation to, the social, political, economic and cultural surroundings. Complemented by an extensive bibliography of primary and secondary works and a biographical guide to more than one hundred and fifty women writers, it represents an invaluable resource for those wishing to discover or extend their knowledge of French literature written by women.

Chronological survey of women's writing in France from the sixth century to the present.
Baudelaire's Prose Poems, Hardback (October 1999)» View all books by Sonya Stephens
This book considers Baudelaire's prose poetry as an exploration of the duality of the genre. It considers the ironic and parodic aspects of the work and, in the light of Baudelaire's own theories of the comic, argues that his prose poetry is best understood as a form of literary caricature.
