Fanny Lewald (1811-1889) was a popular and prolific writer of novels, novellas, short stories, travelogues, letters, political essays, and other works. Although Lewald was to become a very well-known, best-selling author, she was largely forgotten within 20 years of her death. Feminist critics rediscovered her in the 1970s, and a few of her works have since been republished. Most of Lewald’s other work, however, is available only in the reading rooms of scattered libraries. More about Fanny Lewald
