Topics covered include ideologies of love and courtliness; women's voices and roles; incest and identity; poetics; historical approaches; and adaptations and transformations."--Jacket
An anthology of medieval love debate poetry( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This very first anthology of medieval love debate poems - comprising five masterpieces of the genre - explores the many compelling mysteries raised by the experience of romantic love. Some have been translated into modern English for the first time. With wit, ingenuity, and humor, these poems suggest intriguing answers to what contemporary inquirers would call questions of gender and sexual politics: Who loves better, men or women? Are men or women more faithful in love? Are women obligated to reciprocate the attentions of an ardent male? What qualities in a lover do women most desire?"--Jacket
