Summary
"How did Simone de Beauvoir become Simone de Beauvoir, the leading feminist thinker and emblematic intellectual woman of the twentieth century? Toril Moi blends biography with literary criticism, feminist theory, and historical and social analysis, to provide a provocative and original account of Beauvoir's education and formation as an intellectual." "In a second edition of her landmark study of Simone de Beauvoir, published 100 years after Beauvoir's birth, Toril Moi provides a major new introduction discussing the recent publication of papers and letters by Beauvoir, including her letters to her lovers Jacques-Laurent Bost and Nelson Algren, and her student diaries from 1926/7."--BOOK JACKET
