Epistolarity, publicity, and painful sensibility: Julie de Krüdener's Valérie

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Julie de Krüdener’s epistolary novel Valérie ou Lettres de Gustave de Linar à
Ernest de G. (1804) illustrates the complex dynamics of female authorship in the
early nineteenth century. Krüdener strategically models her narrative on
Johann Wolfgang Goethe’s 1774 novel Die Leiden des jungen Werther. This strategy represents her adaptation of a number of contemporary literary and cultural
discourses such as epistolary writing, the discourse of sensibility, the language of
scientific inquiry and didactic writing.
