Praise for Subject/Object and Beyond: Women in Early Modern France (Reflections on Early Modernity / Réflexions sur la première modernité #1)

“These essays give a sense of the really broad and incredibly varied swath of studies in early modern literature and culture that Colette Winn has influenced and helped to cultivate. The field of studying early modern women/writers is an incredibly vibrant, rich, and complex one, with really exciting things happening on many fronts."
— Nora Peterson, University of Nebraska-Lincoln

“…une contribution substantielle aux études sur les femmes de la première modernité.”
