Helene Böhlau (1859–1940)

Böhlau, Helene (bė’lou). A German novelist; born at Weimar, Nov. 22, 1859; died in 1940. She shows now and then a leaning toward the romantic school, but on the whole her high power of description is realistic and her writings are imbued with passion. Among her novels are: ‘Under Death’s Ban’ (1882); ‘Guilty of a Pure Heart’ (1888); ‘In Fresh water’; ‘A Half-Animal.’
