Most widely read today as the author of the "Heptam�ron," Marguerite de Navarre (1492-1549) was known in her lifetime as a deeply religious, mystical poet. Sister of the King of France and wife of the King of Navarre, her deeds and writings expressed and sought to promote a living faith in Christ, based on the gospels, and a vision for the renewal and reform of the Church in line with the teachings of French Evangelicals such as Lef�vre d'�taples, Guillaume Bri�onnet, and G�rard Roussel. In this volume, eleven eminent scholars offer new appreciations of Marguerite's extraordinary life and rich and diverse literary ouvre, including, in addition to her short-story collection, dialogues, mirror poems, plays, songs, and an allegorical prison narrative.Table of contentsNotes on ContributorsIntroductionGary Ferguson and Mary B.
