What do books on how to behave tell us about society during the Middle Ages?
Focusing on a broad range of texts from England, France, Germany, and Italy—conduct and courtesy books, advise poems, devotional literature, trial records—the contributors to Medieval Conduct draw attention to the diverse ways in which readers of this literature could interpret such behavioral guides, appropriating them to their own ends.
Contributors: Mark Addison Amos, Anna Dronzek, Roberta L. Krueger, Ruth Nissé, Ann Marie Rasmussen, Jennifer Fisk Rondeau, Claire Sponsler.
This collection is engaging, exciting, and well researched. The authors write with theoretical sophistication while taking a novel approach to the study of conduct literature.
