Flori, a Pastoral Drama: A Bilingual Edition Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the first pastoral dramas published by an Italian woman,Floriis Maddalena Campiglia's most substantial surviving literary work and one of the earliest known examples of secular dramatic writing by a woman in Europe.Although acclaimed in her day, Campiglia (1553-95) has not benefited from the recent wave of scholarship that has done much to enhance the visibility and reputation of contemporaries such as Isabella Andreini, Moderata Fonte, and Veronica Franco. As this bilingual, first-ever critical edition ofFloriillustrates, this neglect is decidedly unwarranted.Floriis a work of great literary and cultural interest, noteworthy in particular for the intensity of its focus on the experiences and perceptions of its female protagonists and their ideals of female autonomy.Floriwill be read by those involved in the study of early modern literature and drama, women's studies, and the study of gender and sexuality in this period.
