The Woman with the Wolf

Although Renée Vivien led a life of wealth and privilege in belle epoque Paris, she often felt like an outsider because she was attracted to other women. Financially secure, she wrote books to suit her own taste rather than that of the literary market. The Woman with the Wolf (La dame à la louve), from 1904, shows her at the height of her powers.

These fierce, surprising stories challenge moral hypocrisy and normative views about gender, beginning with the title work, which offers a coded representation of same-sex love in the seemingly inexplicable commitment between a woman and her canine companion. The following stories feature a reimagined fairy tale in which Prince Charming turns out to be a young woman, a western adventure whose narrator goes mad with thirst, and other unconventional narratives that range across time and space.

Reviews

"More than a century after their publication, Renée Vivien's short stories foreground issues that women continue to face: sexual violence, double standards, and social inequality." —Gayle Levy, University of Missouri, Kansas City



"The editor's references to the Me Too movement . . . show how Vivien's stories anticipate issues women are grappling with today." —Tama Lea Engelking, Cleveland State University
