Ruling Women is the first study of its kind devoted to an analysis of the debate concerning government by women in seventeenth-century France. Drawing on a wide range of political, feminist and dramatic texts, Conroy sets out to demonstrate that the dominant discourse which upholds patriarchy at the time is frequently in conflict with alternative discourses which frame gynæcocracy as a feasible, and laudable reality, and which reconfigure (wittingly or unwittingly) the normative paradigm of male authority. Central to the argument is an analysis of how the discourse which constructs government as a male prerogative quite simply implodes when juxtaposed with the traditional political discourse of virtue ethics. In Government, Virtue, and the Female Prince in Seventeenth-Century France, the first volume of the two-volume study, the author examines the dominant discourse which excludes women from political authority before turning to the configuration of women and rulership in the pro-woman and egalitarian discourses of the period. Highly readable and engaging, Conroy’s work will appeal to those interested in the history of women in political thought and the history of feminism, in addition to scholars of seventeenth-century literature and history of ideas.

1538. La cour du roi François Ier est fastueuse. Un mouvement magnifique venu d'Italie, la Renaissance, exalte la beauté dans les arts. Architecture, peinture, sculpture : François est un esthète, un roi bâtisseur. Mais ses décisions politiques sont souvent influencées par sa redoutable et ambitieuse maîtresse, Anne de Pisseleu, duchesse d'Etampes. Arrivée de son Italie natale, la petite duchessina, Catherine de Médicis, a épousé Henri, duc d'Orléans, deuxième fils de François Ier mais la mort prématurée du dauphin la propulse au rang de dauphine. La voici, contre toute attente, appelée à devenir reine de France. Catherine est intelligente, discrète et cultivée. Elle ne tarde pas à conquérir le coeur de son beau-père avec qui elle partage l'amour des arts. Cette affection l'aide à vivre une situation douloureuse, car à peine arrivée dans son pays d'adoption, la jeune Florentine découvre que son époux est fou amoureux d'une femme de vingt ans son aînée, Diane de Poitiers, que hait la duchesse d'Etampes. Leur conflit a des conséquences politiques considérables. Les joutes de l'alcôve se répercutent dans les chancelleries. Aidée d'Oriane de Vaudricourt qu'elle sauve de l'enfermement au couvent, Catherine va s'adapter à cette cour hostile où règnent des clans, sur fond de guerres de religion. Incapable de donner un héritier à la France pendant plusieurs années, la dauphine doit lutter pour se maintenir à une place qui lui est disputée. Souvent en proie au désespoir, jamais au renoncement, sa ténacité, son sens politique, sa patience et son sang-froid l'aideront à surmonter tous les obstacles qui se dressent. Une femme sensible, aimante, pertinente et attachante , installée dans une époque flamboyante qu'elle marquera de son sceau. Une histoire, un destin. Un roman.

In 1577 France a prominent member of the court of King Henri III murdered his wife under mysterious circumstances. Shortly afterward a group of anonymous poems written about the murder circulated in print. Seven years later, one of those poems, an enigmatic sonnet, appeared on the final page of a controversial edition of poems by the well-known French author, Pierre de Ronsard. Because that edition has been considered unauthorized throughout the years, the mysterious sonnet has rarely been read or examined. This book proposes attributing authorship of the sonnet to Ronsard by investigating numerous historical figures and events associated with the sonnet, the contested, controversial edition of the poems, and the life of the poet himself. Calling attention to a fascinating poem, a turbulent society as well as to forgotten voices by combining intelligent speculation with historical data, <I>His Story, Her Story reopens a literary mystery that has been neglected for centuries.

La multiplicité des pratiques et des situations en psychiatrie, les différences entre les théories de référence semblent offrir, même aux yeux des psychiatres, une image éclatée de leur profession. Pourtant, à travers les représentations populaires de la maladie mentale, dans le miroir tendu par les médias, se dessine une image moins brouillée d'un métier cohérent dans sa diversité, même si cette image ne tient pas toujours compte des extraordinaires changements opérés depuis vingt-cinq ans.

Women in the Days of Cathedrals

Regine Pernoud has addressed herself to the study of many questions about the status of women in the Middle Ages and presents her surprising answers in this captivating work. Here one learns that the most ancient treatise on education in France was written by a woman; and medicine was practiced regularly by women in the thirteenth century; that in the twelfth century the Order of Fontevraud gathered both monks and religious sisters under the authority of an abbess. This is a systematic study that provides a multitude of concrete examples. No aspect of feminine activity in the course of the medieval periods is neglected: administration of property, professions and commerce, the intellectual life, even politics; writers, educators, sovereigns, and those who enlivened the royal courts. Moreover, the author draws from the history of law and the history of events and social customs to sketch something never before attempted, an outline of the evolution of the power of women. This is a classic work without reference to which any inquiry into the questions addressed here must remain incomplete.
