La description:

"These innovative essays are outstanding because they examine well-known works and genres in new ways, and they revise and revitalize our thinking about them."—Rupert T. Pickens, University of Kentucky These essays explore the various manifestations of the heroine in medieval French literature and her multiple relationships with discourse, both medieval and modern. From a discussion of 12th-century saints’ lives to an examination of 15th-century farce, they span the Middle Ages, both chronologically and generically. Focused yet considering a wide range of texts, they shine new light on the heroine and how she behaves, including how she herself uses discourse. Contents Introduction, by Kathy M. Krause Part I.
