Gender in Debate from the Early Middle Ages to the Renaissance written by Thelma Fenster

 

Gender in Debate from the Early Middle Ages to the Renaissance written by Thelma Fenster

Overview:

This collection takes the view that authors like Chaucer and Christine de Pizan, often presented as unique, iconic promoters of a debate thought to have occurred primarily in England and France in the late medieval years, should in reality be considered participants in a larger conversation that served diverse political, social, and economic interests and took varied, culturally-determined forms; that greater frame and its contents are the emphasis of this volume. By exploring previously ignored areas, many present fresh material and produce reconceptualizations that use new methodologies.

Synopsis:

Combative and edgy, these essays provide new readings of medieval texts and literary genres to point up the deeply charged debates on gender and roles current at the time. Chaucer, late medieval German literature, French courtly fiction, a guide to virtue and another on domestic advice in 14th- century Florence, and two 15th-century Italian painting cycles are among the topics. The contributors are academics in religious studies, French, Spanish, English, and art history in the US and the UK. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
