Hi Céline! Thank you for introducing me to Rachilde! What a fascinating writer.
Maybe I’ve been listening to too many true crime podcasts lately, but your analysis made me wonder if there is any evidence that Rachilde was interested in early criminology or psychiatry?
Thank you for your kind comment! I am obsessed with crime podcasts myself!
As far as Rachilde is concerned, I don’t think she had any interest in criminology but she had interest in psychiatry, I believe. This is something I should look more into… Thank you!
Maybe we’ll get a chance to discuss this next year!
