I considered myself most unfortunate because God had made me inhabit a female body in this world
- Christine de Pizan (1364–1440)
At times, Pizan felt like a second class citizen inhabiting a Middle-Aged female forme. Whether or not this motivated her melancholy, further defined her femininity or both are worthy of further discussion and analysis. Pulled in multiple directions, historians remember significance different than our individual biases towards novelty. Moving towards this “enlightenment” is immobilizing and the manifestation of metaphysics of the Platonic forme for the ideal is the path worth pursuing as per the Ancient Greeks.
