Listening to Heloise : the voice of a twelfth-century woman( Book )

13 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Heloise, the twelfth-century French abbess and reformer, emerges from this book as one of history's most extraordinary women; a thinker-writer of profound insight and skill. Her supple and learned mind attracted the most radical philosopher of her time, Peter Abelard. He became her teacher, lover, husband, and finally monastic ally. That relationship has made her fame until now. But Heloise is far more important in her own right. Seventeen experts of international standing collaborate here to reveal and analyze how Heloise's daring achievements shaped normative issues of theology, rhetoric, rational argument, gender and emotional authenticity."--Jacket
Joan of Arc and spirituality( Book )

10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joan of Arc (1412-1431) is a challenging figure in the history of spirituality. This collection explores multiple facets of Joan's life of prayer, action, and suffering. Two-thirds of the essays focus on the Maid in her own time, providing new insights into how Joan and others understood her spirituality. The later chapters study Joan's formative influence upon modern women. Taken together, these essays offer new perspectives on the heroism of Joan's original way of sanctity."--Jacket
The Malory debate : essays on the texts of Le morte Darthur( Book )

11 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the past fifty years, debates about the authority and authenticity of editions of Malory have sparked much controversy: should Caxton be followed, the Winchester version, or a mixture of both? The papers in this volume represent the most important contributions to the dialogue; previously published articles have been updated where relevant and new issues are presented in several original essays, while the introductions place the argument in its theoretical and historical contexts."--Jacket
On Arthurian women : essays in memory of Maureen Fries( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthurian studies in honour of P.J.C. Field by Bonnie Wheeler( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Peter Field, Professor of English at the University of Wales, Bangor, is a distinguished Arthurian scholar (and vice-president of the International Arthurian Society) whose work has focused particularly on Malory's 'Morte Darthur'. This special interest is reflected by the contributors to this volume, but a wide variety of other Arthurian and associated material is also covered in the twenty-seven studies. The chapters range over the whole field of Arthurian vernacular texts and include new studies of early French and German texts as well as an analysis of the impact of Arthurian materials on Galician-Portuguese poetry. Many provide new insights into Malory's text and sources, and these culminate in reflections on Malory's impact on one later American reader, Mark Twain. Collectively the chapters on Malory substantiate a the claim that Malory is a keen and critical reader of his source texts, and that he is a powerful stylist.

Essays on aesthetics and medieval literature in honor of Howell Chickering( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors to this festschrift consider the relation of aesthetics to Old as well as Middle English literature, including Chaucer especially, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Gower, Lydgate, as well as medievalisms both Romantic and modern.0It requires but brief acquaintance with Howell Chickering, either through his publications or in propria persona, to delight in the extraordinary sweep of his knowledge and interests. Happily, the intent of this volume is to celebrate the fullness of Chickering’s reach. The contributors to this festschrift were asked to consider, in their own ways, aesthetics in relation to medieval literature. A bevy of contributors have responded to Chickering’s extensive scholarship on Old English as well as Middle English subjects – Chaucer especially, but also Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Gower, Lydgate; furthermore, several contributors follow his other interests from the Middle Ages to medievalisms both Romantic and modern
