Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A History of Central European Women's Writing represents an intellectual event of considerable magnitude."—Halina Filipowicz, Slavic Review
Booknews
The women writers of Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovakia, and Slovenia have been much neglected in the literature, more so than their male equivalents. Hawkesworth (Serbian and Croatian studies, U. College, London) sets out to correct this imbalance with this collection of 18 essays that cover writing from the Middle Ages to the present. The contributors are academics and researchers of the literature of these countries who reside either there or in London. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
