This volume assembles selections from the five main printed Tudor translations of the works of Christine de Pizan: The Moral Proverbs of Christine (1478 and 1526), The Feats of Arms and Chivalry (1489), The Book of the Body Politic (1521), The Book of the City of Ladies (1521), and The Hundred Histories of Troy/Epistle of Othea (1549). Known now primarily as the proto-feminist author of the Book of the City of Ladies, Christine de Pizan was known in her own time not only as the originator of the querelle des femmes, but as a major author writing in many genres and on many subjects. Topics such as political theory, military history and theory, moral advice, and revisionary mythography (not to mention education, lyric poetry, and royal biography) formed the basis of her work. This volume's selections represent these topics and illustrate that Christine was known and read as a serious, authoritative writer in Tudor England.
