Book News Annotation:
Better known writers such as Maria de France, Queen Matilda of England, Christine de Pizan, and Margery Kemp, are joined by those whose works are difficult to find, such as Perpetua of Carthage, Egeria of Spain, and anonymous barbarian poets. The selections are not mere excerpts, but some have been reduced slightly. Enlarged and revised from the 1987 edition to include more writers, and more textual materials such as introductions, critical commentaries, and bibliographies.
