The Writings of Christine de Pizan

The Writings of Christine de Pizan

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Edited by perhaps the foremost authority on the life and writings of medieval writer de Pizan, this volume is an impressive compilation of the early feminist's work. The collection is designed as an overview of de Pizan's life and works, many offered here in English translation for the first time. De Pizan was considered a formidable force in the literary circles of her day, and her writing ranged widely--from politics to lyric and allegorical poetry; she was also an important chronicler of society and an advocate of women's rights. Translated from the complex writing style of 15th-century France into a readable and enjoyable menu, this is a valuable addition to any collection by itself or as a complement to the successful The Book of the City of Ladies (Persea, 1982), de Pizan's most popular title.-- Jacqueline Garlesky, Univ. of Pittsburgh, Johnstown, Pa.
