Title : Seditious Activities: The Conspiracy of Maud de Vere, Countess of Oxford, 1403-4 [In 1403-04 Maud de Vere, dowager countess of Oxford, involved herself in an attempt to restore "Richard II" (actually an impostor) to the English throne. There is no obvious reason for this conspiracy except belief in the pseudo-Richard as true king. Maud was pardoned on the request of Queen Joan, the wife of Henry IV. This may have been an effort by Henry to place his new wife in high relief as a source of pardons. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

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. Reprinted in The Selected Writings of Christine de Pizan: New Translations, Criticism. Edited by Renate Blumenfeld-Kosinski. Pages 297-311. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
