"[An] important and powerful contribution to the understanding of medieval texts and the place of women in medieval society."--Medieval Review "The contributions are valuable in . . . their teasing out of the nuances of violence in medieval writing, in particular sexual violence."--Medium Aevum "Texts are scrutinized for evidence of a code of violence against women operating beyond the boundaries of the texts themselves . . . . This is a stimulating collection, which eschews any easy, reductive conclusions. Its interest reaches far beyond the limits of gender studies."--Oxford Art Journal "The essays are . . . eminently readable, and . . . contribute, in many significant ways, to the current discourse on women and the Middle Ages."--Parergon "A useful survey."--Choice "Thought-provoking."--International Journal of the Classical Tradition "[An] excellent collection. . . . A useful and well-argued study of medieval gender constructs."--AUMLA
