Overview

This richly detailed account provides an important addition to current work on women in late medieval England, taking as its starting point the household diary of Alice de Bryene, a Suffolk noblewoman of the late 14th and early 15th century. Like Christine de Pizan, de Bryene enjoyed greater status and influence as a widow and owner of several large estates than most married women of her time, allowing her a remarkable degree of social and financial independence. Moving outward from de Bryene's own life, this illuminating work provides a vivid picture of the medieval household , examining marriage, education, patronage, and the private and public roles of the medieval woman of privilege.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Alice de Bryene, a Suffolk heiress of the late 14th and early 15th centuries provides a model for exploring the live of women in general. A widow, she owned several large estates and according to her Household Book, seems to have enjoyed greater status, influence, and independence than most married women of the period. Swabey draws on a background in modern history, political science, and women's history. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
