As the end of the 20th century approaches, many predict that it will mirror the 19th-century decline into decadence. The author of this text finds a closer analogy with the culture wars of France in the 1690s - the time of a battle of the books known as the Quarrel between the Ancients and Moderns.

Marie de France, Mme. De Sävignä, and Mme. De Lafayette achieved international reputations during periods when women in other European countries were able to write only letters, translations, religious tracts, and miscellaneous fragments. There were obstacles, but French women writers were more or less sustained and empowered by the French culture. Often unconventional in their personal lives and occupied with careers besides writing?as educators, painters, actresses, preachers, salon hostesses, labor organizers?these women did not wait for Simone de Beauvoir to tell them to make existential choices and have "projects in the world." French Women Writers describes the lives and careers of fifty-two literary figures from the twelfth century to the late twentieth. All the contributors are recognized authorities. Some of their subjects, like Colette and George Sand, are celebrated, and others are just now gaining critical notice. From Christine de Pizan and Marguerite de Navarre to Rachilde and Häl_ne Cixous, from Louise Labe to Marguerite Duras?these women speak through the centuries to issues of gender, sexuality, and language. French Women Writers now becomes widely available in this Bison Book edition.

"Madame Bovary" is the French writer Gustave Flaubert's debut novel. The story focuses on a doctor's wife, Emma Bovary, who has adulterous affairs and lives beyond her means in order to escape the banalities and emptiness of provincial life. Though the basic plot is rather simple, even archetypal, the novel's true art lies in its details and hidden patterns. Flaubert was a notorious perfectionist and claimed always to be searching for le mot juste ("the precise word"). Madame Bovary takes place in provincial northern France, near the town of Rouen in Normandy. The story begins and ends with Charles Bovary, a stolid, kindhearted man without much ability or ambition. Gustave Flaubert (1821-1880) was an influential French writer who was perhaps the leading exponent of literary realism of his country. The celebrated short story writer Maupassant was a protégé of Flaubert.

" Il n'est pas inutile, après vingt-cinq ans, d'analyser la place d'Ainsi soit-elle. C'est bien, je crois, parce qu'il a eu une fonction dans le féminisme contemporain, une place à part. L'une des fonctions essentielles de ce livre, pour toute une génération, est sans doute d'avoir été un pont entre les jeunes féministes et leurs mères. Leurs mères, même si elles étaient bienveillantes avec leurs filles, étaient souvent déroutées, dans les années soixante-dix, par leurs filles militantes. Par leur radicalité, la mixité, une certaine forme de violence qui paraissait nécessaire à beaucoup, mais certainement pas aux mères. Et soudain, avec Ainsi soit-elle, une femme de leur âge prenait la parole, une femme qui avait elle-même des filles. Et elle leur racontait son histoire qui était souvent la leur, ou une partie de la leur. Et elle leur disait non seulement de regarder le féminisme avec intérêt, mais de rejoindre elles-mêmes le combat, de toute urgence. " Josyane Savigneau.
