Overview

Overview

A comprehensive bibliography covering the most productive period to date, 1991 - 2002, of scholarship on the work of Christine de Pizan.
Martin Le Franc's prediction in Le Champion des dames (c. 1440) that Christine de Pizan's name would endure for ever is borne out in the current extraordinary vogue of interest in Christine as France's first professional female writer (c. 1364-c. 1431). Supplement II, building on the volumes published by Kennedy in 1984 (502 items) and 1994 (391 items), covers the most productive period to date of scholarship on her work: 1991-2002 (1255 items). The present work is made up of six chapters: Bibliographies and Manuscript Catalogues; General Surveys of Christine de Pizan's Life and Works; Studies of Specific Topics (Manuscripts, Miniatures and Manuscript Illumination; Christine de Pizan, England, Spain, and Portugal; Christine de Pizan and Italy; Feminism and Related Topics; Humanism; Political, Social, and Educational Themes; The Court of Love 1400/01; Poetic Themes and Form; Language; Musical Settings; Miscelleaneous); Anthologies, Selections, and Collected Critical Studies; Individual Works: Manuscripts, Editions, Translations, and Critical Studies; Reviews of Items Listed in the 1994 volume. The Indexes are now cumulative, covering all three volumes published to date. This analytical bibliography will provide a unique interdisciplinary resource to all scholars working in the field of late-mediaeval studies.
ANGUS J. KENNEDY is Stevenson Professor of French at the University of Glasgow.
