Her translations maintain the rhythm and meaning of the original while introducing many to the Danse Macabre Des Femmes, a version of the famous work that receives less attention than the Danse Macabre Des Hommes. This is one of the best books out there for historians of European culture.

The Danse Macabre consists of the dead or a personification of death summoning representatives from all walks of life to dance along to the grave, typically with a pope, emperor, king, child, and laborer. It was produced as memento mori, to remind people of the fragility of their lives and how vain were the glories of earthly life. Its origins are postulated from illustrated sermon texts; the earliest recorded visual scheme was a now-lost mural at Holy Innocents' Cemetery in Paris dating from 1424 to 1425.

La danse macabre des Femmes is a deal younger than the original Danse Macabre. The dance of the men was painted at St. Innocents' cemetery in the years 1424/1425 and we have manuscripts that are almost as old. In contrast the oldest manuscript we have with the women's dance is from 1470-80. The women's dance was obviously inspired by the famous Danse Macabre. 995 of the Bibliothèque Nationale.

The Danse Macabre of Women is a 15th-century French poem found in a lavishly illuminated late medieval manuscript.  The only Dance of Death devoted entirely to women, it was written by an anonymous author and subsequently expanded by several poet/editors.  In this version, one of the later productions, 36 women are called in the midst of their bustling daily lives to join the eternal Dance of Death.  Young and old, rich and poor, widow, matron, and child―each is the focus of two short poelms written in the form of a dialogue (Death calls and the victim replies) and accompanied by an illumination (or a miniature).

The combined text and illumination forms a valuable social document describing these Parisian women and their preoccupations, pleasures, and attitudes toward death and the life they are leaving.  The manuscript thus affords an occasion for social, historical, and anthropological insight.  Because it post-dates the popular printed editions published by Guyot Marchant in Paris beginning in 1486, it also offers an opportunity to study the dynamic interactions between manuscript and print, between popular and high culture, in the early years of the Renaissance.

The book contains reproductions of each manuscript folio, five in full color, a transliteration and translation into English of the text (on facing pages), and explanatory chapters by Ann Tukey Harrison and by art historian Sandra L. Hindman.
