Assisted by: Pratt, Karen; Unknown function: Marx, C. W.

Recensie(s)

A most significant contribution...This anthology meets the urgent need for a single and substantial sourcebook * The Way * 'fascinating anthology of medieval writings ... the selections in Woman Defamed are presented in clear, modern English, including many new translations by Blamires ... I admit I took perverse delight in dipping into the wellsprings of Western misogyny. Ultimately, however, skimming for fun and outrage does a disservice to the real importance of Blamires' book. A steady, cumulative reading of the anti-feminist tracts in Woman Defamed is an opportunity to peer into the distant past and find it disturbingly familiar.' Pamela J. Petro, The Women's Review of Book, Vol. X, No. 5/February 1993 'fine anthology ... Woman Defamed and Woman Defended will be staying out on the desk' Times Literary Supplement
