    Abstract

    Book synopsis: German women writers of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries have been the subject of feminist literary critical and historical studies for around thirty years. This volume, with contributions from an international group of scholars, takes stock of what feminist literary criticism has achieved in that time and reflects on future trends in the field. Offering both theoretical perspectives and individual case studies, the contributors grapple with the difficulties of appraising ‘non-feminist’ women writers and genres from a feminist perspective and present innovative approaches to research in early women’s writing. This inclusive and cross-disciplinary collection of essays will enrich the study of German women’s writing of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and contribute to contemporary debates in feminist literary criticism.
