Through readings of literary texts as well as conduct manuals and moral treatises, Carpe Corpus investigates the meaning of time in early modern France. Arguing that canonical critical assessments of Renaissance temporality have neglected the crucial category of gender, this book reveals a more multifaceted vision of time at work in both male and female poets.
