Full Description


The book places Otto-Peter's literary work in a historical and biographical framework. In the 1840s she investigated the condition of the German working class in a way that invites comparison with Engels, and used the material for early novels. Later in life she was involved with a number of women's organizations and edited a journal of women's emancipations; all these developments are recounted in detail, with helpful references to parallel movements in Britain and America.
