Title : Isabel González of the Cancionero de Baena and Other Lost Voices [The author suggests that we might attribute the lack of identifiable women writers of Castilian poetry to a culturally mandated desire for female anonymity. She further suggests that these women may have made a greater contribution to medieval Spanish literary culture than scholars have previously allowed, but we may never be able to concretely identify their voices. Three poems refer to Isabel González as a gifted poet and formidable wit. None of her poems survive though the rubrics of other poems identify her as the mistress of Juan Alfonso de Guzmán, the count of Niebla. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Medieval Welsh Poems to Nuns [Among the poems of the "cywyddwyr" (medieval Welsh poets) is a sub-genre of erotic poems addressed to nuns; the speaker presents himself as a suitor while the nun takes the position of the disdainful courtly maiden. Although irreverent, these poems are not satirical and serve as genuine love songs. The five poems the author examines in this article are attributed to the fourteenth-century poet Dafydd Ap Gwilym, but the language and style of all but one of them point to a fifteenth-century composition date. The appendix transcribes these five poems in Welsh with English translations. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : The Erotic Poetry of the "Cywyddwyr" The author examines sexually explicit poems written by medieval Welsh poets. Some poets borrow heavily from Continental sources (such as Jean de Meun’s "Roman de la Rose" and the French pastorelle genre), but others employ distinctively Welsh literary genres (like the "llatai," a poem that features a male speaker who sends a messenger to seek the female’s favor, or the "cywydd gofyn," a poem that requests a gift). While some of the poems fulfill male desires by presenting women as sexually voracious or by suggesting that mutual enjoyment of sexual intercourse legitimates male acts of rape or violence, other poems explore what happens when the male’s desires are thwarted.

Title : The Blessed Virgin's Joys and Sorrows [Based upon a comparison with analogous material in English, Latin, and Anglo-Norman texts, the author establishes the dating and attribution of three religious poems (two in Welsh and one in Irish) that concern the Virgin's joys and sorrows. Although the manuscripts attribute the three poems to three thirteenth century poets, the textual evidence indicates that they were actually written by three entirely different poets in the fourteenth century.
