Summary
"Medieval Women's Writing is a new contribution to our understanding of women's writing in England, 1100-1500. It includes writings in Latin and French as well as English, and works for as well as by women. Marie de France, Clemence of Barking, Julian of Norwich, Margery Kempe, and the Paston women are discussed alongside the Old English lives of women saints, The Life of Christina of Markyate, the St. Albans Psalter, and the legends of women saints by Osbern Bokenham." "Diane Watt argues that female patrons, audiences, readers, and even subjects contributed to the production of texts and their meanings, whether written by men or women. Only an understanding of textual production as collaborative enables us to grasp fully women's engagement with literary culture. This rethinking of early women's literary history has implications for all scholars working on medieval literature, on ideas of authorship, and on women's writing in later periods."--BOOK JACKET
