Reviews

“. . .this very detailed and perceptive study has found a fervor and a particular tone to reveal a group of [women] writers who were formerly exiled into the realm of anonymity. . . . Annette Shahar has made a profound contribution to the discourse on gender studies. . . . Her meticulous analysis of the writing processes successfully convinces us that the contribution of these women writers is unquestionably original and momentous.” – Ilana Zinguer, Professor of Literature of the Renaissance, Department of French Language and Literature; Head of the Center of French Civilization, University of Haifa, Israel

“The interesting question which Annette Shahar asks links the meaning of feminine writing to the creation of a specific and generic identity. She convincingly shows that the texts, belonging to precise genres and conditioned by codes, were used by women who re-wrote them so as to show their re-appropriation of the texts and their own inscription in a field mainly occupied by male authors at the time.” – Dr. Nadine Kuperty-Tsur, Ph.D., Senior Lecturer, Chair, French Department, Tel Aviv University
