In Dialogue with the Other Voice in Sixteenth-Century Italy: Literary and Social Contexts for Women's Writing (Book)
Title: In Dialogue with the Other Voice in Sixteenth-Century Italy: Literary and Social Contexts for Women's Writing
Editor: Margaret L. King
Editor: Julie D. Campbell
Editor: Maria Galli Stampino
Editor: Albert Rabil, Jr.
Abstract: This collection of essays and texts surveys the culture and intellectual context of early modern Italy in order to render more intelligible the writing of Italian women. The role of women in society and the persistent misogyny even of the most pro-woman texts are explored in the essays, and the recent critical debates are examined. These translations make available in English a selection of male-authored texts that directly or indirectly elicited the spirited responses of women, for which the volume is aptly entitled “In Dialogue.” A classroom resource, the volume is an addition to The Other Voice: Toronto series
