Title : Bodily Walls, Windows, and Doors: The Politics of Gesture in Late Fifteenth-Century English Books for Women [the author analyzes three romances in manuscript, a printed romance, and the courtesy text, "Book of the Knight of the Tower"; she argues that the manuscript texts are more concerned with social status than the policing of relations between women and men and harken back to the glory days of courtly life, while the printed texts appeal to a wider audience, especially the bourgeois, and concentrate on sexual respectability].
