Establishes the place of this medieval writer within considerations
Christine de Pizan, an Italian-born writer in French in the
early fifteenth century, composed lyric poetry, debate poetry,
political biography, and allegory. At times complicit, at times
subversive, at times revisionary, her texts constantly negotiate
the hierarchical and repressive discourses of late medieval court
culture. How they do so is the focus of this volume, which places
Christine's work in the context of larger discussions about
medieval authorship, identity, and categories of difference. Here,
contributors from the fields of history, literature, legal theory,
art history, and medieval studies offer a truly interdisciplinary
perspective on the Christine corpus.
