TTT: Translated Women Featured in my textbooks

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday is a back to school freebie: anything “back to school” related like 10 favorite books I read in school, books I think should be required reading, Required Reading For All Fantasy Fans, required reading for every college freshman, Books to Pair With Classics or Books To Complement A History Lesson, books that would be on my classroom shelf if I were a teacher, etc.

Since its still WIT Month, I decided to do the Women in Translation in my Literature Classes. They are mostly poets and none were actually covered in my class, unfortunately. They were just in the book, which shows that there’s some progress when including women in the circulum but not enough. I know its supposed to be ten, but once I got started I figured I may as well include them all.

Western Literature:

Marie de France

Hildegard of Bingen 

Beatrice, Countess of Dia

Christine de Pizan

Heloise

Veronica Franco

Marguerite de Navarre

Madame de la Fayette

Mercy Otis Warren
