Focus is on modern literature produced in the German language - whether from Germany, Austria, or Switzerland - or from writers using German in other countries. This volume covers an extensive period of time, beginning in 1945 at what was called "zero hour" for German literature and proceeding into the 21st century.
Entries for 340 dramas and prose works by roughly 200 German speaking women authors from the 18th and 19th centuries. Includes synopses and bibliographical references. Very little biographical information.
