Reading Women's Worlds from Christine de Pizan to Doris Lessing : A Guide to Six Centuries of Women Writers Imagining Rooms of Their Own Paperback / softback

Description

In this work, Jansen explores a recurring theme in writing by women: the dream of finding or creating a private and secluded retreat from the world of men. These imagined "women's worlds" may be very small, a single room, for example, but many women writers are much more ambitious, fantasizing about cities, even entire countries, created for and inhabited exclusively by women.
