Jessica DeVos publishes essay in OUP volume “Ovid in French”

August 3, 2023

Jessica DeVos’s essay examining Madeleine de l’Aubespine’s translation of Heroides 2 was published on August 3 in the OUP volume Ovid in French: Reception by Women from the Renaissance to the Present, edited by Helena Taylor and Fiona Cox.  Coincidentally coinciding with “Women in Translation Month,” DeVos’s chapter gives attention to the overlooked role played by one woman, Ronsard’s fille d’alliance, in the Renaissance endeavor of linguistic and literary nation building.
