Uneasy Possessions: The Mother-Daughter Dilemma in French Women's Writings, 1671-1928

by

In Uneasy Possessions: The Mother-Daughter Dilemma in French Women's Writings, 1671-1928, Katharine Ann Jensen analyzes the work of five major women writers, discovering a four-century pattern of mother-daughter relationships marked by domination, submission, and conflict. This study explores work of Marie-Madeleine de Lafayette, Marie de SZvignZ, Elisabeth VigZe Lebrun, George Sand, and Colette, arguing that conflict between the mothers and daughters depicted resulted from two contradictory ideologies.
