summary
Helene Schweitzer’s dramatic life conceals deeper questions of how memory is influenced by gender assumptions and how biography is shaped by place and history. By proposing a counter-narrative to the traditional image of a frail woman who sacrificed her life to her husband’s genius, this well-researched collection of essays on a little-known figure invites a larger discussion about the meaning of a woman’s life “obscured” by a partner’s fame.
