Summary
"This volume, designed with the student reader in mind, provides an indispensable blend of key essays in the field with specially commissioned new material by feminist scholars from the UK and the US. The essays address a diversity of texts and feminist approaches and are framed by a substantial and illuminating introduction by the editors, and an annotated list of further reading which offers preliminary guidance to the reader approaching the topic of gender and medieval literature for the first time." "Works and writers covered include: Chaucer; Margery Kempe; Christine de Pisan; the Katherine Group of Saints' lives; Langland's Piers Plowman; and medieval cycle drama." "Students of both medieval and feminist literature will find this an essential work for study and reference." --Book Jacket
