Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book Women Writing Back / Writing Women Back contains the table of contents, note on the editors, note on the contributors, and a list of illustrations. The objective of the book is to enhance the understanding of the part women played-on a collective as well as on an individual level in their dialogues as authors and readers, both among their own sex and with men-in the shaping of the literary field in Europe before 1900. The book covers a diverse range of national literatures and periods: from Russia to Portugal, and from Spain to Denmark and the Netherlands. This is partly a conscious choice-too often, as mentioned, generalizations about women's writing are made on the basis of too little evidence-but it is also a reflection of the status of current research, and of its very fragmented nature.

Keywords: national literatures; Russia; women's writing
