FGSS 3130

Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2020-2021.

This course will study medieval women writers and some of the contexts and methodologies that might help us assess their works and lives. There will be some attention to writings to women, and we'll sample the vast range of writings about women; but the main focus will be on writing (apparently) by women, considered historically and in the literary, religious, and other terms that the writings invite, as well as modern theories and historical stratagems for approaching the topic. Early texts will include Perpetua's martyrdom, Heloise's letters, Hildegard of Bingen and other visionaries, poetry by Marie de France and some trobaritz, then a substantial part of the term will treat visionary writings, family letters, poetry collections, and even drama by women in late medieval England. This class may be used as one of the three pre-1800 courses required of English majors.

When Offered Fall.
