Welcome to Sophie's Literature Collection...
Most scholars, teachers and students who are interested in exploring 18th and 19th century writing by German-language women authors have constantly been confronted with the questions:
Where do I find the texts ? and
How do I find texts in modern print that I can use in the classroom ?
The Sophie project is a step in the direction of easing this difficulty. This digital library will contain approximately 245 titles (295 volumes) by German-language women writing between 1740 and 1923. These texts, which have previously been out of print and difficult to access, cover a broad spectrum of genres, including novels (often with multiple volumes), stories, dramas, autobiographies, letters, travel journals and poetry.
