Women Against Napoleon
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Although Prussia's beloved Queen Luise and the Swiss-born aristocrat and writer Germaine de Stael were Napoleon Bonaparte's best-known female opponents, women's discontent with Napoleon and the Napoleonic wars was more widespread - and vocal - than once assumed. "Women Against Napoleon" expands our awareness of the range of women's responses to the despot by presenting an international spectrum of female opposition, including contemporary letters, diaries, and published writings, as well as historical fiction of the twentieth century. By juxtaposing analyses of these materials, this volume forges new links between literary, historical, and gender scholarship.
