Author(s): Harker, C. Marie.
Title : The Two Duchesses of Gloucester and the Rhetoric of the Feminine [The author explores the two marriages of Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, third son of Henry IV. In the first he rashly made an alliance with Jacqueline, countess of Holland, which endangered England's ties with Burgundy. Defending her territories proved difficult, and he abandoned her, taking one of her ladies-in-waiting as his wife soon thereafter. Popular sympathy coalesced around the deserted countess with poems and petitions celebrating her as a good wife betrayed. Humphrey was rehabilitated to a degree by representing his second wife, Eleanor Cobham, as a seductress who snared him with sex and enchantments. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Author(s): Phillips, Kim M.
Title : Desiring Virgins: Maidens, Martyrs, and Femininity in Late Medieval England [The author explores the attractions of virgin martyr stories for young women in the audience. Phillips suggests that the treatment of sexual themes in these stories should be described as "parasexual" (borrowed from studies of Victorian bar maids), cases in which sexuality is acknowledged but is controlled. At the same time the young virgin martyrs are presented as beautiful, glamorous, and dressed in fashionable clothing; all of this was of prime interest to the young women in the audience.

Author(s): Lewis, Katherine J.
Title : Edmund of East Anglia, Henry VI and Ideals of Kingly Masculinity [The author argues that Lydgate's "Life" of King Edmund was intended to instruct the young Henry VI in kingly behaviors. The Mirror for Princes tradition of advice literature as reflected in the Middle English version of the "Secretorum" also emphasized the importance of religion in a king's responsibilities, particularly with regard to sexual self-control.

Author(s): Hennequinn, M. Wendy.
Title : Not Quite One of the Guys: Pantysyllya as Virgin Warrior in Lydgate's "Troy Book" [The author argues that Lydgate represents Penthesilea with a mixture of manly and womanly characteristics, thus having her fall into the more flexible gender of the virgin. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Author(s): Crockett, Bryan.
Title : Venus Unveiled: Lydgate’s “Temple of Glas” and the Religion of Love [Although Lydgate’s allegorical poem strikes modern readers as long-winded and boring, it is actually an interesting ironic treatment of frustrated love that achieves its effect by reworking literary influences (especially Chaucer’s dream visions). While the poem appears to be a straightforward praise of Venus and erotic love, numerous Classical references and allusions to inconstant women run throughout the work. Thus, Lydgate actually believes that trusting in erotic love (and women in general) leads to disaster. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
