Breaking the Mold: The First(?) Woman in Italian Literature

When: Mon., Oct. 13, 5:30-6:30 p.m. 2014

Thirteenth-century Florence was not an ideal place to be a woman, especially a fairly outspoken poet. Active between 1260-1270, the woman known only as La Compiuta Donzella left a corpus of three sonnets and her works all but invite examination. Presented by Professor Fabian Alfie as part of Humanities' Week.
