Sample text

To that end, “Christine’s” silence is “appropriate,” because it shows she is paying Lady Justice her full attention. ” One last student I will quote here scolds me a bit: “Just because the tone changes does not mean that the work loses its merit. ” At the end of The Book of the City of Ladies, just as we might have despaired of hearing the voice of “Christine” again, Lady Justice draws her monologue to an end. ” In this moment, the voice of “Christine” is heard again, this time thanking the three women for their help.

Such barriers could seem insurmountable. Both Pizan and Woolf begin their defenses of women with their first-person narrators brought to the brink of despair, heads bowed in shame. The remedies they devise—a city of ladies and a room of one’s own—symbolize the conditions that must be met in order for women to overcome the handicaps they face. Pizan’s city and Woolf ’s room are intended as metaphors—but what metaphors they are. At the turn of the fifteenth century, Christine de Pizan imagined a great city built by women for women, a place where, in the company of other women, every citizen of the city would find herself supported and appreciated.

They do. But they don’t want to make the same distinction between “Christine” the character and Christine de Pizan the writer. I suspect my students understand perfectly well the difference between “Christine” and Christine, but they don’t want to. Maybe the resistance to accepting “Christine” as a fiction and “Mary Beton” as the first-person narrator of A Room of One’s Own is really a testament to our emotional identification with these books. I am pretty sure I overwhelm my students when I tell them how finding The Book of the City of Ladies changed my life.
