This is the first full-length biography of Frances Yates, one of the most extraordinary women scholars of the twentieth century-the British historian and intellectual who penned the acclaimed work Giordano Bruno and The Hermetic Tradition. Yates' The Art of Memory is one of the most influential nonfiction books of the past one hundred years. Mercy College professor and historian Marjorie Jones has written a fascinating life story of this ground-breaking Renaissance scholar.
