Summary:
"Teachers of medieval literature help students bridge the temporal, contextual, and linguistic gulfs between the Middle Ages and the twenty-first century. When episodes involving rape are thrown into the mix, that task becomes even more difficult. The essays in this volume approach these difficult texts in ways that are both academically and ethically sound, recognising that students and teachers bring a variety of experiences to the classroom that necessarily colour the reception of a given work."--Back cover.
