Irmtraud  Morgner - The Life and Adventures of Trobadora Beatrice as Chronicled by Her Minstrel Laura
 
 
 

 

A classic of women's literature – amusing and provocative

Is the eternal "war of the sexes" coming to an end? After an 800-year sleep Trobadora Beatrice wakes up in the present day. She had gone to sleep in the Provence of the high Middle Ages and now finds herself in a world in which her chateau is to make way for a clearway. Not only does she cause this plan to falter; no way can she wrap her mind round the way men and women live together and how the world of the erotic is viewed. The best thing would be to start again from scratch …

The Life and Adventures of Trobadora Beatrice as Chronicled by Her Minstrel Laura, first published in 1974, is considerd by many Morgner's mangnum opus and was a huge success. It combines political satire wirh feminist inspired romance in a demanding fictional potpourri.

Press:
"... this is a one-kind novel: richhly imagined, more than a little forbidding, preternaturally astute, altogether unforgettable."
