  • Abstract: In the "Ditié de Jehanne d'Arc," the autobiographical subject of authorial enunciation becomes female as Christine de Pizan steps out of the androgynous framework of most of her previous work. At the same time, Christine canonizes Joan's myth as an emblem of female heroism. [Reproduced by permission of Garland Publishing.]
