Title : Voice, Authority, and Blasphemy in "The Book of Margery Kempe" [The author examines the importance of blasphemy in the production of literary texts in fifteenth-century England; during this time, vernacular writing was sometimes associated with heresy. While some readers fear Kempe expresses unorthodox religious ideas, the author notes that Kempe espouses orthodox views. Kempe also demonstrates a knowledge of Latin texts even though she claims to be illiterate. Ultimately, Kempe’s unique voice as a woman is preserved through the text even if her speech is mediated by a long line of male scribes and editors. Title note supplied by Feminae].

Author(s): Charles, Casey.
Title : Adversus Jerome: Liberation Theology in the "Wife of Bath’s Prologue" [The Wife of Bath subverts ecclesiastical (clerical) modes of Biblical exegesis in the “sermon” that begins her "Prologue." She appropriates the method of scriptural interpretation used by writers like Saint Jerome, but she uses their interpretive strategies to support her own worldly and carnal ideas on marriage and sexuality. Her sermon is more than a parody of the authorities she imitates; she exposes the misogyny of clerical writers and also sanctifies the profane through her appropriation of exegetical techniques. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
