Author(s): Blumenfeld-Kosinski, Renate.
Title : Jean le Fèvre's "Livre de Leesce": Praise or Blame of Women? [Le Fèvre wrote "Leesce" as a refutation of the text he had earlier translated, the misogynous "Lamentations of Matheolus" ; despite his varied strategies to praise women, Blumenfeld-Kosinski judges his efforts a partial failure because he gives too much consideration to the anti-female diatribes of Matheolus and falls into the trap of stereotyping women].
