Description

This broad, interdisciplinary work explores the little recognised contributions of women to the cultural life of the Danish Golden Age. Featuring chapters on the novelist Thomasine Gyllembourg, the actress Johanne Louise Heiberg and the feminist writer Mathilde Fibiger, this text spans three generations of women from the early to the late Golden Age and indeed beyond. Further it treats the notions about what was considered the proper role of women in Danish society at the time, including the views of male authors such as Soren Kierkegaard and Hans Lassen Martensen. This work provides a fascinating panorama of personalities, literary texts, theatre performances, art works and social-political debates, which collectively give the reader a rich appreciation of the importance of women for the age.
