Refiguring Woman: Perspectives on Gender and the Italian Renaissance

Copertina anteriore
Marilyn Migiel, Juliana Schiesari
Cornell University Press, 1991 - 285 pagine
Refiguring Woman reassesses the significance of gender in what has been considered the bastion of gender-neutral humanist thought, the Italian Renaissance. It brings together eleven new essays that investigate key topics concerning the hermeneutics and political economy of gender and the relationship between gender and the Renaissance canon. Taken together, they call into question a host of assumptions about the period, revealing the implicit and explicit misogyny underlying many Renaissance social and discursive practices.
