Author(s): Walters, Lori.
Title : Fathers and Daughters: Christine de Pizan as Reader of the Male Tradition of "Clergie" in the "Dit de la Rose" [The author investigates the literary relationship between Christine and the male poet Eustache Deschamps. Christine refers to the poet as her master, and her subsequent career is an attempt to beat Deschamps in a contest for poetic legitimacy. Christine may have modeled this literary relationship on the one between Dante and Virgil, but Christine ultimately overcomes the anxiety of influence that characterizes Deschamps’ relationship to his own poetic predecessor Guillaume Machaut.

Author(s): Kelly, Allison.
Title : Christine de Pizan and Antoine de la Sale: The Dangers of Love in Theory and Fiction [Christine’s work greatly influenced later medieval French poets like Antoine de la Sale. Although Antoine never directly cites Christine, her influence is pervasive throughout his works about courtly love. Her influence is especially pronounced in the similarities between the fictional characters of Dido (from Christine’s “Livre de la cite des Dames”) and Belles Cousines (from Antoine’s “Jehan de Saintre”). Antoine’s complex irony allows him to both affirm Christine’s feminist viewpoints as well as express misogynist opinions; however, he fails to see any humor in Christine’s own work. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Saints' Lives as a Source for the History of Women, 500-1100 The author argues that saints' lives are still a relatively underutilized source for the early Middle Ages generally and for women's history in particular. The lives convey social values, collective mentalities, and much indirect information on women's experience. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
