Reassessing the Heroine in Medieval French Literature, Paperback / softback Book

Reassessing the Heroine in Medieval French Literature Paperback / softback

Edited by Kathy M. Krause


These essays explore the various manifestations of the heroine in medieval French literature and her multiple relationships with discourse, both medieval and modern.

From a discussion of 12th-century saints' lives to an examination of 15th-century farce, they span the Middle Ages, both chronologically and generically.

Focused yet considering a wide range of texts, they shine new light on the heroine and how she behaves, including how she herself uses discourse.
