Title : The "Homicidal Women" Stories in the "Roman de Thèbes," the "Brut Chronicles," and Deschamps's "Ballade 285" [The author summarizes her thesis in this way: "These three phenomena concerning the homicidal-women stories--their participation in the narrow yet strong narrative tradition of women-on-top, their framing in the inaccessible sphere of myth, and their use as a currency of literary prestige--were all coherent with the dominant male ideology and, perhaps more unexpectedly, useful in shaping national politics." (Pages 207-208)].

Title : Albine and Isabelle: Regicidal Queens and the Historical Imagination of the Anglo-Norman Prose "Brut" Chronicles [The author argues that the prose continuators of the "Brut," particularly the author of the "Long Continuation," draw connections between Albine, the rebellious daughter of a noble king who kills her royal husband and is exiled to a distant isle that she names Albion, and Queen Isabella of France, who plotted with Roger Mortimer to kill her husband, King Edward II, and usurp his power. The Appendix presents an edition of the prose prologue to the "Long Version" of the Anglo-Norman prose "Brut" with a facing page English translation. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
