About this book

This study examines French women's writing and representations of the Occupation in post-'68 France. The author looks at the work of 'The Women Resisters', those women who were adult resisters during the war, and 'The Daughters of the Occupation', those who were born during or after the war period. The main contention of the study is that the older generation's nascent awareness of how gender informs political activism is reworked into explicitly feminist representations of wartime France by younger women writers.

Claire Gorrara is Professor of French Studies at Cardiff University.

Reviews

'This book certainly does offer...a new perspective on French literature about the Second World War...(a 'gender-conscious' approach to a period habitually considered from the point of view of its male protagonists.' - Modern Languages Review

'A stimulating perspective and an interesting corpus of texts.' - African Affairs
