Title : What to Call Petrarch’s Griselda [The story about Griselda appears in many medieval manuscripts and early printed editions, but each version is unique, with different introductory and concluding rubrics (headings and titles). These rubrics provide insights into the variety of ways early scribes and readers read the story: it could be read as a myth, history, fable, or exemplum. A bibliography lists 188 manuscripts containing Petrarch’s Latin Griselda story. Title note supplied by Feminae.].

Title : Cantigas d'escarnho and "serranillas": The Allegory of Careless Love [Sexually explicit texts that parodied literary works of courtly poets (like Bernart de Ventadorn) or obscene poems that satirized medical texts could serve legitimate purposes. Obscene literature participated in an interpretive network alongside other types of texts. Whether directly or indirectly (through allegory, allusion, or double entendre), these texts commented upon or critiqued the themes of more prestigious genres like courtly literature.

Title : Give the Saint Her Due: Hagiographical Values for Chaucer’s Second Nun’s Tale and Graham Greene’s "The End of the Affair" [When approaching Saint Celia (protagonist of the Second Nun’s Tale) and Sarah Miles (adulterous protagonist of Greene’s twentieth-century novel), modern critics perceive both of these heroines in a negative manner (deeming them disrespectful or unbelievable as female exemplars). However, such critics abide by rational and objective perspectives which are inappropriate for analyzing hagiographical literature. When viewed from a mystical and spiritual perspective, both heroines radically overturn male power structures and exhibit female strength and virginal power. While Greene revises the hagiographical tradition in his modern-day saint’s life, the essential features of the medieval genre remain unchanged. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
