Women of the Left Bank: Paris, 1900-1940.
by [Paris in the 1920s] Benstock, Shari.
University of Texas,
A Fine copy in a Near Fine dust jacket with touch of rubbing to the extremities and a small nick to the rear flap. This important study investigates a little-known aspect of 20th-century literary history. Benstock describes the lives and work of approximately two dozen English and American women who lived in Paris during its heyday as a literary center. Though many of these women made significant contributions both to Parisian expatriate culture and to modern literature, they have long been overshadowed by the reputations of their male relatives and colleagues. By examining the lives and work of such diverse figures as Gertrude Stein and Caresse Crosby, Edith Wharton and Djuna Barnes, Benstock attempts to establish what it was like to be both a woman and a writer in literary Paris at the time. >From the Library Journal.
