Summary "Fanny Lewald: Between Rebellion and Renunciation provides the first comprehensive account in English of the life and work of Fanny Lewald (1811-1889), tracing the way she positioned herself - sometimes precariously - between rebellion and renunciation. All genres are considered: novels and stories, autobiography, travel literature, essays, diaries, and letters. Widely recognized as one of the early German advocates of women's right to education and work, this study places Lewald's views on these issues in a broadly comparative cultural context. This book will, therefore, be of interest not only to specialists in German literature, but also to students and scholars of European cultural and social history, Jewish studies, and women's studies."--BOOK JACKET.
