Summary
"The Correspondence of the Pastons, a fifteenth-century Norfolk family, is one of only two substantial collections of letters and documents to have survived from the period, and is unique in the volume of women's correspondence it contains. This selection includes letters from three generations of Paston women: Agnes Paston, her daughter-in-law Margaret, and Margaret's own daughter-in-law Margery, together with correspondence from other women family members and associates. An introduction places the letters in the context of medieval women's writing and letter writing; the interpretive essay examines what the letters reveal about the lives of particular women - domestic responsibilities, education, piety, health, and female friendship - from an ambitious provincial family in the late middle ages."--Jacket
