Generation of Identity in Late Medieval Hagiography by Gail Ashton

Book Description

In this interdisciplinary and boundary-breaking study, Gail Ashton examines the portrayals of women saints in a wide range of medieval texts. She deploys the French feminist critical theory of Cixous and Iriguray to illuminate these depictions of women by men and to further our understanding of both the lives and deeds of female saints and the contemporary, and almost always male, attitudes to them.

Medieval Afterlives in Popular Culture by Gail Ashton Medieval Afterlives in Popular Culture, Hardback (November 2012)

This book is concerned with our ideological, technical and emotional investments in reclaiming medieval for contemporary popular culture. The authors illuminate both medieval and contemporary popular culture in surprising and productive ways while interrogating the many ways in which metamedievalism reinterprets and reconceptualises the medieval.

Brief Lives: Geoffrey Chaucer by Gail Ashton Brief Lives: Geoffrey Chaucer, Paperback (August 2011)

One of England's best-loved authors, Geoffrey Chaucer was a poet, bureaucrat and diplomat. His richly imaginative and witty works, written in vernacular English rather than courtly French or Latin, established his mother tongue as a literary language in its own right.
