Queering the Middle Ages by Glenn Burger

A re-examination of medieval attitudes towards gender and sexuality from postmodern theoretical perspectives. Thirteen contributions examine homosexuality in a range of literary genres, including works by Chaucer, Christine de Pizan, Dante, philosophical and dramatic works. The essays also examine the political and intellectual context of medieval literature and philosophy, such as Edward II's reign, and the effect of modern gender theory and AIDS on medieval studies.
