  • Title: Commentary and the Rhetoric of Exemplarity: Griseldis in Petrarch, Philippe de Mezieres, and the "Estoire" [The story of patient Griselda was retold throughout the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries in different languages; in each treatment of the story, authors see Griselda as an exemplary figure, but they disagree on what exactly she exemplifies. Petrarch portrays Griselda’s submission to her husband figuratively (she represents a Christian’s submission to God). For Philippe, Griselda’s story has both figurative and literal meanings. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
