Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"In a study that features close readings of little-known and very well known texts and examination of marginalia and other indications of reader response, [Francomano] deftly traces the troubled relationship between women and wisdom . . . an overview cannot do justice to the richness and complexity of Emily Francomano's book." - Speculum
