beschrijving

This book discusses the international literary contacts between Dutch readers (male and female) and those women authors whose work crossed the border into the Netherlands. It focuses on women writers before 1900, from various European countries and North America. The articles in this collection give an impression of the importance of this foreign female presence in Dutch literature before the intensification of international contacts, in which the outbreak of the first feminist wave played a role: from Sappho, Georgette de Montenay and Mary Wollstonecraft to Harriet Beecher Stowe and Eugenie Marlitt. How were they read and evaluated by anonymous readers – male as well as female – and by well known individuals such as Anna Maria van Schurman, Conrad Busken or Margaretha Meyboom?
