In pursuit of perfection : courtly love in medieval literature by Joan M Ferrante( Book )

14 editions published between 1974 and 1975 in English and Spanish and held by 1,014 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This unique study is the result of the combined efforts of six eminently qualified scholars of medieval literature. Through intensive analysis of the major genres -- lyric, romance, allegory and fabliau -- the authors trace the evolution of the fascinating and complex phenomenon known as "courtly love". The authors do not attempt to explain the historical origins of courtly love -- avoiding the controversies that have resulted in conflicting and confusing views -- but rather are committed to exploring its presence and meaning in medieval texts. The collective approach to courtly love is also innovative in its elucidation of facets of the concept hitherto overlooked: the subtle and complex relationship of the poet and the audience, for example, and the paradoxical rejection and subsequent affirmation of courtly love by the German poets

Guillaume d'Orange: four twelfth-century epics by Joan M Ferrante( Book )

Guillaume d'Orange is the most extensive epic cycle of the Middle Ages. Set in the ninth century, the poems on the life of William of Orange grew out of several centuries of oral composition and were written down for the first time in the twelfth century. Changing and growing through the years, the poems reflect historical events from the ninth to the twelfth century. -- Book cover
To the glory of her sex : women's roles in the composition of medieval texts by Joan M Ferrante( Book )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To the Glory of Her Sex presents an account of medieval women's activities as correspondents, readers, writers, and literary patrons from antiquity through the fourteenth century. The writings explored here represent a cross-section of virtually every field in historical and literary studies, including Latin literature, romance literature in French, political and religious correspondence, theological and moral treatises written for women, and histories and biographies commissioned by or addressed to women. Reading in the public and private correspondence of medieval women, for example, Ferrante discovered to what degree their involvement in affairs of the world and their role in the work of prominent men have been underestimated. Among the major figures in this panorama are Elisabeth Schonau, Hildegard of Bingen, Hrotsvit, Marie de France, and Christine de Pizan
