Christine de Pizan wrote voluminously, commenting on various aspects of the late-medieval society in which she lived. Considered by many to be the first French woman of letters, Christine and her writing have been difficult to place ever since she began putting her thoughts on the page. Although her work was neglected in the eighteenth and nineteenth century, there has been a eruption of Christine studies in recent decades, making her the perfect subject for a casebook. This volume serves as a useful guide to contemporary research exploring Christine's life and work as they reflected and influenced her socio-political milieu.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Because de Pizan lived and wrote in turbulent times and because she was the first woman to earn a living from her writing, editors Altman and McGrady wisely saw a need for this worthy casebook, which presents both older and newer research in the field.."
-"Library Journal
..."[a] delightful collection of essays. All chapters are highly readable and carefully documented. The bibliography is a valuable research tool. Highly recommended."
-"Choice
..."the research is comprehensive and accompanied by a lengthy introduction. Recommended for academic libraries...."
-Robert Ivey, University of Memphis
"informed, well-developed essays, accompanied by up-to-date bibliographies, which will be useful both for less-experienced students of Christine and for veteran scholars. This is an excellent collection of clear, jargon free studies, offering many perceptive connections among Christine's works."
-Heather Arden, University of Cincinnati, Speculum, October 2004
