Abstract

The first sustained study of girls and girlhood in early modern literature and culture. Jennifer Higginbotham makes a persuasive case for a paradigm shift in our current conceptions of the early modern sex-gender system. She challenges the widespread assumption that the category of the 'girl' played little or no role in the construction of gender in early modern English culture. And she demonstrates that girl characters appeared in a variety of texts, from female infants in Shakespeare's late romances to little children in Tudor interludes to adult 'roaring girls' in city comedies. This monograph provides the first book-length study of the way the literature and drama of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries constructed the category of the 'girl'.

Abstract

This handbook is based on the project "Österreichische Kinder- und Jugendbuchautorinnen" (Austrian WomenWriters of children's literature), which was defined as part of the project "biografiA. datenbank und lexikonösterreichischer frauen" (database of austrian women, http://www.biografia.at), localised on the Institute forScience and Art in Vienna. In the years 1999 to 2002 more than 800 women writers could be describedbiographically. Among them are many women, who wrote only one single book for children, there are someillustrators who decided to write also the text for their books and there are also some wellknown writers forChildren's books, like Christine Nöstlinger, Renate Welsh, Friederike Mayröcker and many others. There ist notime-limitation, so we have a good overlook of the whole production of children's literature in Austria. Austriameans by that way to be born in this land or to live here for more than 10 years. Many of the living authors sendt their curriculum vitae and also many experts on this field helped to fill up theentries. But there are great differences between the portraits of the women, differences in the length of the articles,in the presenting details of the lifes and also differences in their way to live, in their political behaviour and so on.Many of the authors had to flee from austria during the time of nationalsocialism because of their jewish origin ortheir political background. Some of them are nearly forgotten. They were murdered or had to emigrate in a landwith another language, the chance to be able to continue the writing career was very small. But we know somewomen who had the luck to continue the career. Alex Wedding is one of them, she founded with some otherwriters like Auguste Lazar the proletarian children's literature. Hertha Pauli is one of the women whose careerbegan in her exile, she began to write books for children in the USA.
