The life and afterlife of Isabeau of Bavaria by Tracy Adams( )

9 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 585 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Tracy Adams has done an excellent job of showing how Isabeau of Bavaria's evil reputation is a myth for which there is no substantial evidence. This work refashions our understanding of Isabeau's place in the struggle between the Armagnacs and Burundians and throws light on the circumstances out of which Christine de Pizan's works emerged."--Karen Green, Monash University" "The fascinating history of Isabeau of Bavaria is a tale of two queens. During her lifetime, Isabeau, the long-suffered wife of mad King Charles VI of france, was a respected and revered. After her death, she was reviled as an incompetent regent depraved adulteress, and betrayer of the throne. Asserting that there is no historical support for this posthumous reputation, Tracy Adams returns Isabeau to her rightful place in history." "Adulteress and traitor-two charges long leveled against the queen-are the first subjects of Adam's reinterpretation of medieval French history. Adams begins her study of the beleaguered French queen by considering why these two charges have so long endured. Scholars have concluded that the myths of Isabeau's scandalous -past are just that: rumors that evolved after her death in the context of a political power struggle. Unfortunately, this has not prevented the lies from finding their way into respected studies on the period. Adams's own work serves as a corrective, rehabilitating the reputation of the good queen and exploring the larger topic of memory and the creation of myth." "Adams next challenges the general perception that the queen lacked political acumen. With her husband incapacitated by insanity, Isabeau was forced to rule a country ripped apart by feuding, power-hungry factions. Adams argues that Isabeau handled her role astutely in such a contentious environment, preserving the monarchy from the incursions of the king's powerful male relatives."
Female beauty systems : beauty as social capital in Western Europe and the United States, Middle Ages to the present( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Female beauty systems everywhere are complex, integrating markers of class, status, power, and sexuality to perform the fundamental function of sorting individuals into categories of "more" or "less" desirable. Heirs to the tradition of courtly love, modern western female beauty systems tend to share the norm of man as pursuer, woman as pursued, having developed around the trope of the madly-desiring poet or knight supplicating his aloof and lovely lady for her favor. The apparent longevity of the courtly love tradition raises the question of whether the way in which it structures male desire in reaction to female beauty is part of a "universal" tendency, an evolutionary adaptation, despite clear evidence that female beauty systems are also, in fact, socially constructed, and reflect enormous ambivalence about the power and performance of beauty. Although modern western female beauty systems are routinely demystified and contested today, the purveyors of culture that support them institutional, intellectual, artistic, commercial, and popular continue as they always have to construe women as objects of male desire. Still, within this basic structure, the systems have varied greatly across time and space, with women using beauty as a form of social capital in widely differing ways. Moreover, as individuals have begun to experience their bodies as malleable and endlessly transformable, rather than unruly and unyielding, many have begun to experience beauty less as a given and more as a project. The nine essays collected here examine a number of different Western female beauty systems over the centuries, considering how women have complied with, contributed to, profited or suffered from, and resisted them. -- Publisher
