About this title


Andersen-Wyman's book undoes most scholarly uses and understandings of De amore by Andreas Capellanus. By offering a reading promoted by the text itself, Andersen-Wyman shows how Andreas undermines the narrative foundations of sacred and secular institutions and renders their power absurd. Her book offers the best explanation yet for why Andreas's was one of only two books condemned by Bishop Tempier in 1276: the tools Andreas offers his readers, as well as what Andreas suggests about his own desire and what should be the place of women in society, could make his book dangerous in almost any era.

About the Author:

Kathleen Andersen-Wyman received her B.A., with high honors in English, from Oberlin College and completed her M.A. and PhD in Literature at the University of California at Santa Cruz.  All three degrees focused on medieval literature and culture. She has taught at universities in California, Tennessee, Idaho and Texas. She currently resides with her family on the Texas Gulf Coast, where she teaches Literature, Honors English, Art Appreciation and Humanities at Brazosport College. She also directs the college art gallery, and diversifies her scholarly interests, when there is time, by painting and writing fiction.
