Discussions on gender, patriarchy, and fascism are brought to bear on the works of Nely Sachs, Anna Seghers, Elisabeth Langgasser, Ingeborg Drewitz, Luise Rineser, Grete Weil, Christa Wolf, and others. The book also includes an autobiographical account of a Holocaust survivor's experience. In light of recent political events in Europe, this book is particularly relevant."--BOOK JACKET.
