Hide Profile

Staël wrote plays, fiction, essays, novels, and criticism. Her life and works are grounded in the transformations of a Europe in revolution. She was heavily involved in European politics from 1786 to her death in 1817, and her art reflects her concerns. She published her novel, Delphine, in 1802, and an English translation appeared in 1803. During a period of exile from France, she visited London, 1813-1814.
