Scholarly reference and good resource encyclopedia8 novembre 2013
- Publié sur Amazon.com
Excellent compendium of articles about women in the Renaissance. I purchased this as I was interested in historical re-enactment, and wanted more scholarly information than internet articles. It is definitely more of a reference/textbook supplement than a read-by-chapter sort of book; I can imagine one of my women's lit professors having assigned this book in college.
The sections are alphabetically organized and cover a nice selection of both well-known and lesser known women/women's subjects from the Renaissance. As a lazy reader, I would have liked to have seen the articles organized by country, but that may have been too repetitive.
