Pizan, Christine De: The Book of the City of Ladies (Revised Edition) (eBook)

"Astonishing, early chapter in women's revisionary history [that] offers true eloquence resurrected from the silence of the past."—The New York Times Book Review

In dialogues with three celestial ladies, Reason, Rectitude, and Justice, Christine de Pizan (1365-ca. 1429) builds an allegorical fortified city for women using examples of the important contributions women have made to Western Civilization and arguments that prove their intellectual and moral equality to men. Earl Jeffrey Richards' acclaimed translation is used nationwide in the most eminent colleges and universities in America, from Columbia to Stanford.
