About this title

Synopsis:

This is a feminist study of women, sex and gender in Chaucer's poetry. The author argues that these are Chaucer's major subjects and that he sees them as areas fraught with problems. The author considers the areas of role and stereotype, gender and genre, and power and subversion. The book concludes with an account of the relationships between discourse, silence, sex and gender, and of Chaucer's changing attitudes to his subjects and his poems.
