Christine De Pizan and the Categories of Difference by Marilynn Desmond
Book DescriptionChristine de Pizan, an Italian-born writer in French in the early 15th-century, composed lyric poetry, debate poetry, political biography and allegory.

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.
