Summary Women Write Back explores the late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century women's responses to texts written by well-known Enlightment figures. Hilger investigates the authorial strategies employed by Karoline von G©ơnderrode, Ellis Cornelia Knight, Julie de Kr©ơdener, and Helen Maria Williams, whose works engage Voltaire's Mahomet , Johnson's Rasselas , Goethe's Werther , and Rousseau's Julie . The analysis of these women's texts sheds light on the literary culture of a period that deemed itself not only enlightened but also egalitarian
