Poets, patrons, and printers : crisis of authority in late medieval France by Cynthia Jane Brown( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cynthia J. Brown explains why the advent of print in the late medieval period brought about changes in relationships among poets, patrons, and printers which led to a new conception of authorship. Examining such paratextual elements of manuscripts as title pages, colophons, and illustrations as well as such literary strategies as experimentation with narrative voice, Brown traces authors' attempts to underscore their narrative presence in their works and to displace patrons from their role as sponsors and protectors of the book. Her accounts of the struggles of poets, including Jean Lemaire, Jean Bouchet, Jean Molinet, and Pierre Gringore, over the design, printing, and sale of their books demonstrate how authors secured the status of literary proprietor during the transition from the culture of script and courtly patronage to that of print capitalism
The queen's library : image-making at the court of Anne of Brittany, 1477-1514 by Cynthia Jane Brown( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do the physical characteristics of the books acquired by elite women in the late medieval and early modern periods tells us about their owners, and what in particular can their illustrations-especially their illustrations of women-reveal? Centered on Anne, duchess of Brittany and twice queen of France, with reference to her contemporaries and successors, "The Queen's Library" examines the cultural issues surrounding female modes of empowerment and book production. The book aims to uncover the harmonies and conflicts that surfaced in male-authored, male-illustrated works for and about women. In her interdisciplinary investigation of the cultural and political legacy of Anne of Brittany and her female contemporaries, Cynthia J. Brown argues that the verbal and visual imagery used to represent these women of influence was necessarily complex because of its inherently conflicting portrayal of power and subordination. She contends that it can only be understood fully by drawing on the intersection of pertinent literary, historical, codicological, and art historical sources. In "The Queen's Library," Brown examines depictions of women of power in five spheres that tellingly expose this tension: rituals of urban and royal reception; the politics of female personification allegories; the "famous-women" "topos"; women in mourning; and women mourned. -- Book jacket

The cultural and political legacy of Anne de Bretagne : negotiating convention in books and documents( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As duchess of Brittany (1491-1514) and twice queen of France (1491-98; 1498-1514), Anne de Bretagne set a benchmark by which to measure the status of female authority in Europe at the dawn of the Renaissance. Although at times a traditional political pawn, when men who ruled her life were involved in reshaping European alliances, Anne was directly or indirectly involved with the principal political and religious European leaders of her time and helped define the cultural landscape of her era. The essays in this book offer insight into areas of intellectual interest : patronage, the history of the book, the power and definition of queenship and the interpretation of politico-cultural documents and court spectacles and are thereby confirming the extensive nature of Anne's legacy
