Hybridity, Identity, and Monstrosity in Medieval Britain by Jeffrey Jerome Cohen

Book Description

This study examines the monsters that haunt twelfth-century British texts, arguing that in these strange bodies are expressed fears and fantasies about community, identity and race during the period. Cohen finds the origins of these monsters in a contemporary obsession with blood, both the literal and metaphorical kind.
