?Beach's checklist of published and manuscript plays by French women playwrights will be extremely valuable to scholars in women's studies. Extremely valuable is the identification of a holding library for each title. Beach's work will make readers long for more information about these playwrights, many of them prolific and famous in their time, and for an explanation of why they are largely absent from literary history.?-Choice
