Companion to Women's Historical Writing, Paperback / softback Book

Companion to Women's Historical Writing Paperback / softback


This A-Z reference work provides the first comprehensive reference guide to the wide range of historical writing with which women have been involved, particularly since the Renaissance.

The Companion covers biographical writing, travelogue and historical fictions, broadening the concept of history to include the forms of writing with which women have historically engaged.

The focus is on women writing in English internationally, but historical and historiographical traditions from beyond the English-speaking world are also examined.

Brief biographies of individual writers are included.
