  • Title: Uta and Isolde: Designing a Perfect Woman [The author argues that Gottfried von Strassburg, the creator of Isolde, and the Naumburger Meister who sculpted the statues of Uta and Reglindis not only shared a set of ideals in regard to women but also made their representations of women dynamic and interactive. The description of Isolde's dress does not emphasize color or richness of cloth but instead continuous movement that produces a performance of gender. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
