Description

To understand Christine de Pizan's voice we must pay attention to the culture from which it spoke and the audiences to whom it was spoken. This collection attempts to address both concerns, partly to understand how and why Christine's work fell from discussion, partly to investigate how and why she has been so often misread, and finally to emphasize a fact amply documented but often ignored - that Christine de Pizan was an influential author for several centuries after her death, that she never completely disappeared, that we have, in truth, merely "rediscovered" her.
