Genealogies of Fiction

Women Warriors and the Medieval Imagination in the "Orlando furioso"

Eleonora Stoppino

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • A contribution to our understanding of early-modern gender formation through a study of the warrior woman and her place in dynastic history.
  • Bradamante in Orlando furioso is a forerunner of Britomart in Spenser's Faerie Queene, and so this book should be important for students and scholars of early modern English as well as Italian literature.
