Enchanted eloquence : fairy tales by seventeenth-century French women writers

Domna C. Stanton (Editor, Translator), Lewis Carl Seifert (Editor, Translator), Victoria University (Toronto, Ont).
This book focuses on unusual fairy tales that have never been translated before and are seminal for understanding the development of the literary fairy tale as genre. French women writers played a central role in the institutionalization of a literary genre in the French civilizing process that had huge ramifications in opera, theater, vaudeville, music, and film. Moreover, their tales influenced other writers of fairy tales in Europe. This book does honor to their creative efforts and provides the basis for further research on the development of the European fairy tales. -- Back Cover
