Description

Exploring the relation between sexuality and cosmology in a variety of literary texts from the tenth to the sixteenth centuries, the essays reveal that medieval authors, whether lay or religious, Christian or Jewish, were grappling with the same sets of questions about sexuality as people are today.

"In Sexuality, Sociality, and Cosmology in Medieval Literary Texts, Brown and Segol bring together an impressive body of scholarship on Latin, Hebrew, Spanish, and English/Scots materials in which sexuality, both chivalric and mystical, is represented and explored. The volume is impressive both for its range where else will you find the 'Zohar' juxtaposed to Alain de Lille and the Libro de Buen Amor? and for its recognition that sexuality in medieval texts is as likely to resonate with ideas about the structure of the cosmos as it is to elucidate the ways in which medieval social relations are cemented and undermined. Required reading for anyone interested in understanding more about the (in)coherences of medieval notions and representations of sexuality." Steven F. Kruger, Queens College and the Graduate Center, CUNY
