Read full description of the books:
This is a collection of extant written works, sorted into categories like 'marriage' or 'work' and then presented chronologically.
I like the idea, but there were a few things that made the book difficult for me to enjoy. For instance, many of the excerpts are not dated, or you are told 'for the description of this, go to the previous excerpt'. It's good that the editor provides the date of the publication she is taking her excerpt from, but I always crave a sense of the date of a piece, even if it's "our best guess is late 10th century."
Also, having read "Treasure of the City of Ladies" and "The Women Troubadours" - I found I had read at least three quarters of the material already. And I found the introductory background material to be too broad for my tastes.

Dr. Carolyne Larrington teaches medieval English literature in the college, ranging from the earliest Old English to the beginning of the Renaissance period.
Dr Larrington's research interests are in Old Icelandic literature, medieval women's writing, European Arthurian literature, and, most recently, medieval emotion. She has published on Old English and Old Icelandic wisdom poetry, compiled "Women and Writing in Medieval Europe: A Sourcebook" and edited two collections of essays on the Old Norse "Poetic Edda". Her revised and expanded translation of the "Poetic Edda", just published, is the standard. Her most recent monograph is 'King Arthur's Enchantresses: Morgan and Her Sisters in Arthurian Tradition' which appeared from IB Tauris in June 2006. Her book on sibling relations in European medieval literature, and a new popular book on British folklore, "The Land of the Green Man" will be published in 2015; a BBC Radio 4 series based on the folklore book has also been commissioned. She is currently editing a collection of essays on emotion in Arthurian literature, and a Handbook to Eddic Poetry. She has been until recently editor-in-chief of the journal Viking and Medieval Scandinavia, and the President of the Viking Society for Northern Research, the British scholarly society for Old Norse study.
