Christine De Pizan and the Categories of Difference by Marilynn Desmond

Book Description

Christine de Pizan, an Italian-born writer in French in the early 15th-century, composed lyric poetry, debate poetry, political biography and allegory. At times complicit, at times subversive, at times revisionary, her texts constantly negotiate the hierarchial 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.
