Description

This volume examines the common medieval notion of life experience as a source of wisdom and traces that theme through different texts and genres to uncover the fabric of experience woven into the writings by, for, and about women.

"The editors of this volume emphasize the importance of communities of discourse in the sharing of knowledge in informal contexts, including domestic settings . . . Women and Experience in Later Medieval Writing invites us to rethink the perceived dichotomy between male or masculine learning and female or feminine experience. Indeed it goes so far as to challenge its validity. In so doing it invites us to reconsider our very understanding of what constitutes education." - Diane Watt, Professor of English, Aberystwyth University and author of Medieval Women s Writing and Secretaries of God: Women Prophets in Late Medieval and Early Modern England
