The Women of the Wolf, written in 1904, is probably Renée Vivien’s finest achievement, the one work in which she combines powerful characters and exciting narratives with poetic clarity of style and vision so apparent in her other works. In this collection of short stories and prose poems, Vivien manages to touch on all the themes and ideas that obsessed her throughout her short life. This is the first English translation of Vivien’s short stories, with an introduction by Karla Jay. Readers of all ages will be enchanted with tales such as ‘Prince Charming, ‘ in which Vivien takes a fresh, incisively feminist approach to old themes and deftly destroys fairly tales. She reworks adventure stories, Biblical tales, Greek and Roman Fables to offer a radically different, explicitly feminist alternative to common lore.
