Christine de Pizan and the moral defence of women : reading beyond gender by Rosalind Brown-Grant( )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 2,041 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christine de Pizan's Livre de la Cite des Dames (1405) is justly renowned for its full-scale assault on the misogynist stereo-types which dominated the culture of the Middle Ages. Rosalind Brown-Grant locates the Cite in the context of Christine's defence of women as it developed over a number of years and through a range of different texts." "This study shows that Christine's case for women nonetheless had an underlying unity in its insistence on the moral, if not the social, equality of the sexes."--Jacket
French romance of the later Middle Ages : gender, morality, and desire by Rosalind Brown-Grant( )

16 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whilst French romances of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries have long enjoyed a privileged place in the literary history of France, romances from the later middle ages have been largely neglected by modern scholars, despite their central role in the chivalric culture of the day. In particular, although this genre has been seen as providing a forum within which ideas about masculine and feminine roles were debated and prescribed, little work has been done on the gender ideology of texts from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. This study seeks to fill this gap in the scholarship by analysing how the views of gender found in earlier romances were reassessed and reshaped in the texts produced in the moralizing intellectual environment of the later medieval period. This book will be of interest not only to students and scholars of medieval French literature but also to students and specialists of other medieval European languages, as well as to medieval historians, and those working in gender studies."--Jacket
The book of the city of ladies by Christine de Pisan( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Philosophers, poets and orators too numerous to mention ... all seem to speak with one voice and are unanimous in their view that female nature is wholly given up to vice.'" "It was this misogynist consensus that Christine de Pizan (c. 1364-1430), France's first professional woman of letters, confronted head-on in the City of Ladies. Here, with the help of Reason, Rectitude and Justice, Christine constructs an allegorical city in which to defend womankind, using examples of female virtue and achievement both from the past and her own day as the stones with which to build the city's walls and towers." "A key text in the history of feminism, the City of Ladies not only provides powerful positive images of women, ranging from warriors, inventors and scholars to prophetesses, artists and saints, but also offers a fascinating insight into the debates and controversies about the position of women in medieval culture. In her Introduction to this new translation for Penguin Classics, Rosalind Brown-Grant sets the work within its historical and intellectual context."--Jacket
Textual and visual representations of power and justice in Medieval France : manuscripts and early printed books by Rosalind Brown-Grant( Book )

11 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thoroughly interdisciplinary in approach, this volume examines how concepts such as the exercising of power, the distribution of justice, and transgression against the law were treated in both textual and pictorial terms in works produced and circulated in medieval French manuscripts and early printed books. The essays analyse a wide variety of texts to offer new insights into the ways in which the language and imagery of politics and justice permeated medieval French culture"--Provided by publisher
