German women writers, Friderika Baldinger, Frieda Freiin von Bülow, Hermine Villinger, Caroline Pichler, Marie Heim-Vögtlin, Elsbeth Meyer-Förster, Gabriele Reuter, Sibylle Schwarz, Johanna Schopenhauer, Anna Louisa Karsch, Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach, Maria Königin von Rumänien
With a pressing need for an anthology of women writers in the field of German literature, where women authors have been consistently excluded from the canon (Blackwell 1990), I have selected fifteen texts, which are grammatically and linguistically appropriate for third-year level German classes. I have assessed the selected texts based on their literary quality, the views and ideals depicted and the educational and cultural value that text may have for the student. I have selected a wide range of texts, including short story prose, poetry, dialogued plays, letters and essays, thus providing the reader with an assortment of different literary writing styles of the time.
