about

Until recently, French women playwrights had received almost no critical attention and their works were for the most part completely unknown, but this volume is evidence of the important contribution they have made to world literature. It presents an extensive list of the dramatic works of over 400 French women playwrights from the 16th through 19th centuries and includes brief biographical, publication, performance, and availability information.

Editorial Reviews

?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
