Summary
"Focusing on the vernacular works of Dante, Boccaccio, and Chaucer, Suzanne Hagedorn argues that revisiting the classical tradition of the abandoned woman enables these medieval authors to reconsider ancient epics and myths from a female perspective and question assumptions about gender roles in medieval literature. Hagedorn's careful examination of these ancient texts illuminates the complex web of allusions that link medieval authors to their literary predecessors." "Abandoned Women will be of interest to medievalists and non-medievalists alike, with an interest in the areas of medieval text reception, poetic tradition, comparative literature, and gender studies."--Jacket
