The Papin Sisters by Rachel Edwards
(Oxford Studies in Modern European Culture)

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


France's "murder of the century" remains also the most violent non-war crime by women against women on record. The Papin sisters' killing and mutilation of their mistresses in 1933 has provoked reproduction and speculation ever since, by such prominent cultural figures as Simone de Beauvoir, Jacques Lacan, and Claude Chabrol. This book offers an overview of these reproductions and draws some provocative conclusions from them.
