German Women Writers: A Series of Blog Posts

Earlier this year, at the beginning of a buddy read of Andrea Wulf’s Magnificent Rebels (in another venue), a friend asked about German (speaking) 19th century women writers or more specifically, German women writers “in the years between the French Revolution and WWI”.  Another friend and (somewhat belatedly) I came up with a few names, but the question stuck with me, and when later putting together a list of German books and authors for a friend in France (under the motto “learn about Germany from German writers” — he did the same, vice versa, for France), I made a point of looking into it again; including though by far not limited to the 19th century.   The results far exceeded my own expectations, and I decided they warrant a series of blog posts; so for anybody who is interested, I’ve put together a multi-post collection of mini-biographies, moving forward essentially in chronological order from the Middle Ages to 20th century and contemporary writers:

If you’re looking for more, Wikipedia has an alphabetical list of German women writers spanning all centuries from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Michael J. Sullivan: Legends of the First Empire

Michael J. Sullivan’s Riyria books have been on my TBR for a while, but until I’d read two short stories from the cycle — The Jester and Professional Integrity — I hadn’t been sure whether his writing would be for me.  Then I found out that (much like Tolkien’s Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, and The History […]
