Exploring interactions of early modern male and female writers, Campbell examines how the querelle des femmes influenced the perception of well-educated women who were part of literary circles in Italy, France, and England from approximately 1530-1650. To gain a better sense of how querelle language and issues were used for or against learned women writers, Campbell aligns selected works by female and male writers, pairing them to analyze how the woman writer responds, deflects, or rewrites the male writer's ideological script on women.

Examining the interactions of early modern male and female writers within the context of literary circles, Campbell (English, Eastern Illinois U.) investigates the ways the querelle des femmes as a discursive rhetorical tradition of praise and blame influenced women who participated in literary circles in Italy, France and England from 1530 to 1650. Campbell pairs selected female and male writers to analyze the way the woman writer responds, deflects or rewrites the male writer's ideological script about women. Her analysis of the confrontation between querelle issues and the new figure of the learned women contributes to a greater understanding of the connections between different national literatures of the period.
