Women Who Read Are Dangerous
Title: Women Who Read Are Dangerous
Author: Stefan Bollmann
A woman reading was once viewed as radical. In chapters - such as: Intimate Moments and The Search for Oneself - Bollmann profiles how a woman with a book was once seen as idle or suspect and how women have gained autonomy through reading over the years. Bollmann offers intelligent and engaging commentary on each work of art in Women Who Read Are Dangerous, telling us who the subject is, her relationship to the artist, and even what she is reading.
This elegant book should appeal to anyone interested in art, literature, or women's history.
