حول المؤلف (2012)

The Johns Hopkins Library holds a large collection of German-language plays which were published and performed between 1880 and 1920. While literary historians claimed that German women writers had contributed little to dramatic literature, this study shows that the opposite was the case: Within the Hopkins collection alone, I found some 50 dramas written by women. This study discusses their considerable contribution to the theatre repertoire of the time, primarily in their depiction of women’s difficult role in family and society, before German women gained the right to vote in 1918.
