Title : Martin Le Franc's Rehabilitation of Notorious Women: The Case of Pope Joan [The author argues that Martin Le Franc worked to counter misogynous writings by speaking in defense of women like Pope Joan who had been cast as figures of wickedness. Le Franc's method, using a debate format, was to 1) emphasize her good characteristics, 2) argue that men led her into trouble, and 3) point to men who had the same weakness, but to a much greater degree. The Appendix presents the medieval French text from the "Champion des Dames," Book IV, Octaves 490-507. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Reopening the Case: Machaut’s “Jugement” Poems as a Source in Christine de Pizan [The author addresses the relationship between Christine’s debate poems and Guillaume Machaut’s “Judgment” poems (also called “dits”). Christine was highly indebted to a French lyric tradition which includes Machaut, but was skeptical of the misogynist content in his writings; thus, her poems transform this literary tradition through female speakers or viewpoints. 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.].
