Overview

Exploring the ways in which French women went public through publication, this book shows how they contributed to the formation of the public sphere in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Going Public also takes the critical literature on the woman writer to a new level by examining the implications of print publicity. The contributors investigate the intersection of gender and publicity in a wide range of printed texts, from memoirs and legal briefs to novels, poems, and fairy tales. In doing so they reveal much about why individual women drawn from the whole spectrum of society embraced the medium of print and about the impact this form of publicity had on their lives.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This collection of essays addresses two major issues regarding Old Regime France: the nature of the public sphere and the status of women. . . . Their generally high quality and common focus make them an indispensable secondary source for scholars interested in the intersection of the two zones of contestation explored in this book."—Thomas E. Kaiser, Eighteenth-Century Studies, Fall 1997
