  • Related Resources: E. Jane Burns, Sarah Kay, Roberta L. Krueger, and Helen Solterer present a witty and thought-provoking collaborative essay about the "bele disjointure" they perceive as scholars caught in between Old French philology and varieties of feminism, a site of conflict and challenge which they find equally constructive for the rethinking of both kinds of approaches. From the review written by Dr. Richard J. Utz of "Medievalism and the Modernist Temper," "Medieval Review" (TMR ID: 96.12.11). [Reproduced by permission of the "Medieval Review."].
