Hi everyone, I'm just starting my first ever MA essay (scary stuff) and we have to pick our own question (within the bound of the course etc). I've decided on looking at the role of Women in the civilizing of courts in the Early Modern period and I just wondered if anyone could recommed any books/articles etc. I've already got Elias and Duiandam (sp?) but I'm having a bit of trouble with the women element of the research, all the books/articles i have so far seem a bit too vague and not really that relevant. So any suggestions would be really appreciated =)

Yeah, Castiglione's great =) As soon as i'd decided on the essay I went straight for him and Thomas Eylot's Book of the Governor. However my tutor's now suggested essays should be more historiographically based within recent debates (ie last 10 years) so I'll probably end up using more discussions of Castiglione than his actual text. But it's all good =)
