Author(s): Chinca, Mark.
Title : The Body in Some Middle High German "Mären": Taming and Maiming [The author examines a number of German "mären," falbiau-like stories, in which wives exert mastery over their husbands, sometimes injuring them in a humiliating fashion. The author argues that the stories are addressed to a male audience who consider women peripheral but are bothered by female involvement in what they consider to be male-only activities. The treatment of the body in the "mären" is a code to express men's centrality and women's place at the social margin. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
