This book is a study of French writer/educator Felicite de Genlis (1746-1830), examining both the way in which she theorized the maternal role in her works and the manner in which she lived out her own maternity. Although she departed from the careless maternal mores that had prevailed for generations among aristocratic women, Genlis' views and praxis also contrasted with the restrictive concept of the mother's role that was taking shape in the interplay of philosophical and economic arguments in the late eighteenth century. She constructed a politics of motherhood that, while not entirely incongruent with the socially defined role, stretched and modulated its parameters. The nature of Genlis' creativity is elucidated here in an exploration of the reciprocal relationship between her real and fictional motherhoods, as well as in an analysis of the literary motherhood she exercised in her practice for women's literary influence and in her practice of new or uncanonical genres.
