Title : Isabel González of the Cancionero de Baena and Other Lost Voices [The author suggests that we might attribute the lack of identifiable women writers of Castilian poetry to a culturally mandated desire for female anonymity. She further suggests that these women may have made a greater contribution to medieval Spanish literary culture than scholars have previously allowed, but we may never be able to concretely identify their voices. Three poems refer to Isabel González as a gifted poet and formidable wit. None of her poems survive though the rubrics of other poems identify her as the mistress of Juan Alfonso de Guzmán, the count of Niebla. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
