Summary
This book offers a multi-faceted view on the wide variety of late-medieval writings on love with which it deals and seeks to respect and reflect their great diversite. Hence it represents an important and timely modification of the rather monolithic views on medieval writings on love which have prevailed ever since Lewis' Allegory of Love. The essays discuss issues such as the relevance or otherwise to English, Anglo-Norman, and Scottish writings of the continental ethos of fyn amor, the importance of social class in medieval discourses on love, and the question of whether gender was a determining factor in the construction of these texts. In keeping with the volume?s fundamental belief in variety and debate, the essays themselves contain an internal dialectic, with individual scholars expressing different views of similar bodies of work or even individual texts. The contributors to this volume are among the foremost scholars working in the field of medieval studies today
