The Renaissance created a new vision of womanhood and indeed a "New Woman," proposes Gaia Servadio in this rich feast of a book. She dates the birth of this revolutionary movement to the invention of the printing press in 1456, which made books-and hence education-available to women. Central to her story are the lives of such as Vittoria Colonna, whose extraordinary mutual love with Michelangelo is told here; Tullia d'Aragona, poet and the best known courtesan of her age; and French poet Louise Labe, who fought in battle in male clothes. They are placed center stage to the Renaissance's power plays, paintings and architecture, courtesans and popes, music and manners, fashion, food, cosmetics, changing societies and the language of poetry and symbols.
