Simone de Beauvoir’s Fiction

Women and Language


Allison T. Holland and Louise Renée

Although interest in Simone de Beauvoir’s fiction is growing, it has received relatively little critical attention. This stimulating and informative collection of essays brings a fresh approach to Beauvoir studies and makes an important contribution to filling this gap. It analyses Beauvoir’s writing practice in her novels and short stories, exploring the extent to which the meaning of her texts cannot be separated from the way they are written. This collection of essays will appeal to academics and students, both undergraduates and postgraduates, who are interested in Simone de Beauvoir, French studies, comparative literature, and gender studies.
