  • Title: Chaucer and Feminism: A Magpie View [The author reacts to criticism from David Aers at a 1990 conference about critics who use snippets of theory indiscriminately. Martin defends the use of a variety of theoretical approaches and cites her arguments in her monograph, "Chaucer's Women: Nuns, Wives, and Amazons" (MacMillan, 1990), which relied on close readings, deconstruction, Foucault's Understanding of the history of sex, Bakhtin's notion of the dialogic, feminist theory, class analysis, and other methods.
