Riassunto: This book brings together a mass of detailed and dispersed material on women in early modern Europe, as well as giving readers a new interpretation of the considerable study of women which has emerged over the list two decades. The author's range is ambitious and, unlike previous works in the field which isolate particular aspects of the lives of women or of the versions of woman, she considers the situation of all kinds of women, all aspects of their lives, across the whole of Western Europe, particularly England and France, and over three centuries. The book's approach is thematic with chapters on female rites of passage - girlhood marriage, married life as well as norms, sexuality, witches and saints.

Sinossi: How did women in 16th century western Europe cope with the consequences of being considered inherently sinful--as well as being legally and economically subordinate to their fathers, husbands, brothers, and sons? What might become of a woman unable to raise a dowry? What were the difficulties faced by spinsters, single mothers, and widows? In this brilliant investigation into the lives of women from all social strata, Hufton leads us from poor-house to palazzo, from cradle to grave, illuminating what it meant to be female in western Europe during the years 1500 to 1800.

Descrizione libro New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1996, New York, 1996. Yellow Cloth. Condizione libro: As New. Condizione sovraccoperta: Fine. First American. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Yellow Cloth. As New/Fine. First American. Hardback. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 636 pages; 21 p. index; 50 p. bibliograph; 46 illustrations; from the dj: "Rich, poor, aristocrat in an Italian palazzo, peasant in a German forest hut or citified wife of a Dutch burgher, a woman's life during these centuries was--as Hufton shows in a portrait both close up and panoramic--shaped in the profoundest sense in the same way. The apparent strength--land, wealth, power and prestige--lay almost exclusively in the hands of men, but Hutton also makes clear just how much men and women worked together and--without thinking of it in those terms, or for the most part being aware of it at all--just how much women were able to influence and control." Book weighs circa 2.4 pounds. Codice libro della libreria 001825
