Feminist writing has emerged in recent years as a major influence of twentieth-century European literature. Textual Liberation, first published in 1991, provides a timely and wide-ranging survey of twentieth-century feminist writing in Europe, presenting texts from a number of countries and highlighting some of the transnational parallels and contrasts. The contributors emphasize the wider contexts- political, social, economic- in which the texts were produced. They cover feminist literature in Britain, Scandinavia, Germany, Eastern Europe, Russia, France, Spain, Italy, and Turkey, and consider a range of genres, including the novel, poetry, drama, essays, and journalism. Each chapter contains an extensive bibliography with special emphasis on material available in English. A stimulating introduction to the development of European feminist writing, Textual Liberation will be an invaluable resource for students of women's literature, women's studies, and feminism.
