Marie de Brabant (c. 1530–c. 1600)

Marie de Brabant (c. 1530–c. 1600)

French poet . Born around 1530 in France; died around 1600 in France; daughter of John of Brabant (Jean de Brabant); married Claude de Tourotte.

A well-educated daughter of the nobility, Marie de Brabant married Claude de Tourotte, a French noble who seems to have encouraged his wife's intellectual pursuits. Marie showed a remarkable aptitude for learning and composing poetry, and by virtue of her class was allowed to nourish her talents. Somewhat of a moralist, she composed epistles against what she considered the lewd and scandalous behavior of French women of the lower classes. She also translated foreign works in verse into French, achieving a considerable reputation. In 1602, she published A Declaration of the Spirit of the Faithful Soul as well as her translation of the Song of Songs.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
