Title : The Great Divide?: History and Literary History as Partners in Medieval Mythology [The author takes four literary works by Geoffrey of Monmouth, Matthew Paris, Boccaccio, and Christine de Pizan as case studies. She argues that they all demonstrate a sophisticated mix of historical, legendary, and Biblical figures. Furthermore in their representations of women they each perform significant cultural work. Geoffrey of Monmouth sought to legitimize Empress Matilda's rule of England. Matthew Paris reinforced desirable female behavior by critcizing dangerous female traits. Boccaccio offered models for women to emulate. Christine de Pizan took this further by acknowledging misogyny in her sources and championing woman's moral nature. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Uncovering Griselda: Christine de Pizan, “un seule chemise,” and the Clerical Tradition: Boccaccio, Petrarch, Philippe de Mézières and the Ménagier de Paris [Christine’s sparse and forceful retelling of the story of patient Griselda in “La Cité des Dames” corrects the clerical tradition that informed previous versions of the story. While male writers like Petrarch, Boccaccio, and Chaucer frame the Griselda story with interpretive commentary, Christine strips the story of embellishment in order to focus attention on Griselda’s eloquence and her suffering at the will of her cruel husband. Just as Griselda is clothed and unclothed as she shifts in status within the story, so is the Griselda narrative itself rhetorically unclothed as Christine retells it.

For instance, Christine’s depiction of male beauty in the “Dit de Poissy” ironically reworks courtly conventions of female beauty. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : The Image of History in Christine de Pizan’s "Livre de la Mutacion de Fortune" [Christine creates a double representation of history in this poem. In addition to relating all the great events in human history, she also presents a personal history in the form of an allegorical autobiography. This narrative fictionalizes her own development into the author of the book, as Christine presents her past self reading a sequence of wall paintings. As she narrates these images, Christine establishes her unique authority as a female poet of history, differentiating herself from the male wall-reading protagonists of the Aeneid, Roman de le Rose, the Prose Lancelot, and Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Title : “Le Livre des Trois Vertus” of Christine de Pizan: Beinecke MS. 427 [Christine exerted a large degree of control over the production and transmission of her writings. Although it is unknown whether any existing manuscript of Christine’s work is written in her own handwriting, Christine did act as both author and editor of manuscripts containing her own poetry. The paintings in Beinecke MS. 427 suggest that Christine also oversaw the illumination of her manuscripts, as the representation of allegorical figures in this volume follow the text of the poem more closely than the illustrations in other manuscripts.

Title : A Woman of Excellent Character: A Case Study of Dress, Reputation, and the Changing Costume of Christine de Pizan in the Fifteenth Century [The author surveys fifteenth century manuscript representations of Christine de Pizan. During her lifetime in manuscripts prepared under her supervision, Christine is presented in modest dress as befits a scirbe and court author. This is in keeping with the message of "Le Trésor" which emphasizes proper conduct for women of every social group. Manuscripts from later in the century, however, give her greater authority by depicting her in furs, elaborate headdresses, and other fashions of contemporary high-born ladies.

Title : Christine de Pizan and the Misogynistic Tradition [In her poetry, Christine de Pizan refutes the misogynist literary tradition exemplified by such texts as the Roman de la Rose. She confronts misogyny on three fronts: reason, experience, and writing. In her allegorical poems, Lady Reason encourages the author to reconsider common notions about women. The poet’s own experience allows her to give many counter examples to misogynist texts. Most importantly, Christine’s scholarly acts of reading and writing generate numerous examples of feminine virtue from books that previous writers have ignored.
