Pressestimmen 'So deeply ingrained is the narrative of Anna's treason that although it hangs by the slenderest thread no Byzantinist until now has dared to challenge it. In her courageous revisionist history Leonora Neville finally does so. A princess who presumed to write military history Anna has long remained a baffling anomalous figure. It is only now that her valour as well as her vulnerability comes into clear focus.' --Barbara Newman London Review of Books'In this novel gendered account of Anna Komnene's Alexiad Leonora Neville presents the Byzantine princess in a completely new light. Analyzing the tensions inherent in being a female historian she disentangles the author from centuries of condemnation. A brilliant convincing reconsideration that returns Anna to her great originality.'--Judith Herrin King's College London 'Anna Komnene is known as a historian of the first Crusade and as a fawning admirer of her father Emperor Alexios I Komnenos. Leonora Neville's brilliant study exposes the gendered logic of Anna's narrative and for the first time gives us a true sense of the historian and her craft.'--Dimitris Krallis Simon Fraser University 'Leonora Neville's highly readable book gives us a new Anna for the twenty-first century and dissects why we have misunderstood her for so long. A major contribution to the history of gender and scholarly reception as well as to that of Byzantium Neville shows just how much we thought was true is nothing of the sort. The already lively field of Byzantine studies is set to become more so.'--Mark Whittow Corpus Christi College University of Oxford 'Neville's gendered reading of Anna's work has indeed been long overdue.' -- Averil Cameron Common Knowledge Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Leonora Neville is the John W. and Jeanne M. Rowe Professor of Byzantine History at the University of Wisconsin Madison and author most recently of Heroes and Romans in Twelfth-Century Byzantium.
