9780745632568: Medieval Women's Writing: Works by and for Women in England, 1100-1500

Medieval Women's Writing is a major new contribution to our understanding of women's writing in England, 1100-1500. The most comprehensive account to date, it includes writings in Latin and French as well as English, and works for as well as by women. Marie de France, Clemence of Barking, Julian of Norwich, Margery Kempe, and the Paston women are discussed alongside the Old English lives of women saints, The Life of Christina of Markyate, the St Albans Psalter, and the legends of women saints by Osbern Bokenham. Medieval Women's Writing addresses these key questions: * Who were the first women authors in the English canon? * What do we mean by women's writing in the Middle Ages? * What do we mean by authorship? * How can studying medieval writing contribute to our understanding of women's literary history? Diane Watt argues that female patrons, audiences, readers, and even subjects contributed to the production of texts and their meanings, whether written by men or women. Only an understanding of textual production as collaborative enables us to grasp fully women's engagement with literary culture. This radical rethinking of early womens literary history has major implications for all scholars working on medieval literature, on ideas of authorship, and on women's writing in later periods. The book will become standard reading for all students of these debates.

Descrizione libro Polity, 2007. Condizione libro: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "A scholarly, sensitive and thoughtful account that will be invaluable to anyone studying the literary history of the period, from undergraduate level onwards." BBC History Magazine"A careful and intelligent selection of some of the better-known works either by, for or on behalf of women . This [is a] highly informed, well-researched, non-esoteric and thoroughly accessible volume." Times Higher Education Supplement"I am delighted by the appearance of this book. Lucidly written for a general audience, Medieval Women's Writing is by far the most interesting, balanced, and up-to-date study now in print. But it is more than this: it is also a collection of original readings of major women writers, which has new and often powerful things to say about how we think about women's writing in the premodern period, and about what it means to describe this writing as a 'women's literary tradition'. Flexible, passionate, ethically engaged, Medieval Women's Writing will be a valuable and much-discussed resource for scholars, teachers, students, as well as general readers." Nicholas Watson, Harvard University"Innovative, informative and accessible, this book is a fundamental re-assessment of medieval women's writing. Watt's work engages with women as writers and readers, as participants and collaborators and, above all, as agents who shape medieval textual production and reception. This is a book on women that is not afraid to consider the early medieval period together with the later Middle Ages. At last!" Clare A. Lees, King's College London"A useful, insightful, and bang up-to-date introduction to medieval women's writing in England by a critic especially sensitive to collaborative aspects of textual production. Recommended!" David Wallace, University of Pennsylvania. Codice libro della libreria ABE_book_new_0745632564
