Gender and Text in the Later Middle Ages

By Jane Chance | Go to book overview
reveal her charge's misconduct expressed in chapter 24: "mais s'elle [if the lady] est revesche et de diverse condicions, despite et de pou d'amour, elle [=the governess] lui dira a part tout asprement--sache bon gré ou mal gré--qu'elle le dira a ses parens et amis, ou a son seigneur se besoing est, se autrement ne se gouverne" (95).
23. For the letter's semantic content and its import in the context of the Trois Vertus, see Dulac, "Feminine Speech,"19-20. Willard, trans., 38, notes the letter's inversion of the advice of La Vieille in the Rose.
24. Perhaps this earlier kind of auto-citation is also being "corrected" in the Trois Vertus.
25. For the status of the work as a whole, see Willard, "A Fifteenth-Century View of Women's Role,"90-120, and "Christine de Pizan's Livre des trois vertus," 91-116. See also Lorcin, "Pouvoirs et contre-pouvoirs,"359-68.
26. In this connection, see Dulac's insightful remarks: "the governess's function is a sort of mirror of the mission that Christine takes on in her work [and] Sebille de la Tour's letter constitutes a mise en abysme of both the work and Christine" ( "Feminine Speech,"20).
