Additional Information

Agnes of Harcourt is an important though little-known 13th-century author. Born into a leading Norman noble family, she became an abbess at the new royal Franciscan abbey of Longchamp, founded just outside of Paris by Isabelle of France, sister of Louis IX. In the 1280s Agnes wrote a substantial biography of Isabelle of France, as well as a brief letter detailing Louis IX's involvement with the abbey. These texts were based on Agnes' first-hand observations and contained many lively stories about their royal subjects. of St Louis and on the lives of some of the most interesting and powerful men and women of the day. More significantly, they preserve one of the very few female perspectives we have for this period, and in The Life of Isabelle, offer what is probably the first biography of one woman by another in French. presents an English translation of her texts and a substantial introduction to her life and work. This critical edition includes both the old French and English versions of the texts.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

For lovers of French history, fans of scholarly works, those who wish to see early feminism in action--Professor Field's book is a must read. Prof. Field does a wonderful job translating the ancient text, and providing the reader with the historical context necessary to engage the work. As a fan of history, but not necessarily all that familiar with medieval France and its particulars, Prof. Field did an excellent job making me appreciate Agnes of Harcourt and her contributions. I eagerly await his next book. I say, "Bravo!!" to Prof. Field and his work!
Wonderfully translated, brilliantly edited...love the introduction. Sean L. Field is a rising star.
