Cora Sandel

Seeker of Truth


Ruth Essex

This book examines the work of the Norwegian Modernist feminist, Cora Sandel (1880-1974), a contemporary of Virginia Woolf, Dorothy Richardson and Sigrid Undset. This first study of her in English defines Sandel as a precursor of contemporary feminist thought and analyzes her text for its innovative approach and provocative message. It offers insight into a creative woman's insistent efforts to re-envision her narrative in order to secure the alterity necessary to replot her destiny.
