The works of Christine de Pizan and their treatment over the centuries since her death serve as an excellent example of the changing nature of criticism and how critical approaches to literature are adapted to suit the needs of different ages. This appears to have been the case in the critical history of Christine's war manual, Le livre des fais d'armes et de chevalerie or, in Caxton's English, The Book of the Faytes of Armes and Chivalrye.
