Editorial Reviews

"Well written and accessible to the general reader as well as to the scholar. Theological analyses of French Renaissance authors are sorely needed, and Thysell's work will contribute not only to feminist and Marguerite criticism but also to the understanding of other authors, Rabelais,Montaigne, Pasquier, and others."-Sixteenth Century Journal
