The stag of love; the chase in medieval literature by Marcelle Thiébaux( )

18 editions published between 1974 and 2015 in English and held by 1,806 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A sport and a military exercise, hunting involved aggressive action with weapons and dogs, and pursuit to the point of combat and killing, for the sake of recreation, food or conquest. The Stag of Love explores the body of erotic metaphor that developed from the hunt together with Ovid's flourishing legacies. While representing a range of human experience, the metaphor finds its dominant expression in the literature of love. As Marcelle Thiébaux demonstrates, the hunt's disciplined violence represented sexual desire, along with strategies and arts for getting love, the joys of love, and love's elevating mystique. The genre gave rise to a lavish imagery of footprints and tracking, arrows, nets, dogs and leashes, wounds, dismemberment and blood, that persisted to Shakespeare's day. Thiébaux opens with an account of a medieval chase and its ceremonies. She introduces hunt manuals that defined and gentrified the sport, in stages from the party's departure to the ferocity of the struggle to the animal's death. These stages adapted readily to narrative structures in the love chase, showing pursuit, confrontation with the beloved, and consummation. In English literature, Thiébaux considers Beowulf, Aefric's Life of Saint Eustace, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and the works of Chaucer. Within continental European literature, she discusses Aucassin and Nicolete, Chrétien de Troyes' Erec, Gottfried von Strassburg's Tristan, the Nibelungenlied, and Wolfram von Eschenbach's works. She concludes with a scrutiny of newly recovered or little-known narratives of the thirteenth, fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Originally published in 1974, The Stag of Love brings to life a theme of perennial interest to medievalists, and to all readers intrigued by the imaginative treatment of love in the Western world

The writings of medieval women : an anthology by Marcelle Thiébaux( Book )

21 editions published between 1994 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in 1994: The period surveyed in this anthology extends from the eve of Christianity's triumph, in the third century, to the new age of expansion in the fifteenth century, an age marked by the advent of printing pressed, the European discovery of the Caribbean islands, which Columbus called the Indies, the relentless stripping of medieval altars by Church reformists, and perhaps a diminution of female autonomy

Liber manualis : handbook for her warrior son by Dhuoda( Book )

5 editions published between 1998 and 2007 in English and Latin and held by 237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new edition of the Liber Manualis, a distinctive guidebook to conduct and survival in tumultuous times by a Carolingian mother for her adolescent son, provides the only complete translation in English accompanied by the Latin original. Revised Latin readings follow corrections proposed by recent scholars and reviewers of the authoritative Pierre Riché text. The volume's Introduction advances fresh views of Dhuoda's individuality and mindset, her possible models, and her intended readership, and places her handbook for the first time within the contexts of French and Germanic literary traditions. Explanatory references illuminate the life and work of this remarkable and well-educated ninth-century woman. Woven in the text is the name and voice of the strong mother, whose moral position remains unique in a patriarchal society. Often called the first Western treatise on childhood education, the Liber Manualis in this new edition, establishes Dhuoda's importance in a feminist and literary context. It embodies a striking story of the times, a mother's outspoken bidding to her son to come into his own as future householder, père de famille, and seignorial lord of his great estate. A mother's fear also runs throughout this personal chronicle of imminent loss, but, arguing as she does for the family's preeminence and right to their estate, her book eloquently stands as a symbolic genealogical replacement of that loss.--Back cover
