Masculine Self in Late Medieval England by Derek G. Neal
Book DescriptionWhat did it mean to be a man in medieval England? Most would answer this question by alluding to the power and status men enjoyed in a patriarchal society, or they might refer to iconic images of chivalrous knights. While these popular ideas do have their roots in the history of the aristocracy, the experience of ordinary men was far more complicated.Marshalling a wide array of colorful evidence - including legal records, letters, medical sources, and the literature of the period - Derek G. Neal here plumbs the social and cultural significance of masculinity during the generations born between the Black Death and the Protestant Reformation. He discovers that social relations between men, founded on the ideals of honesty and self-restraint, were at least as important as their domination and control of women in defining their identities. By carefully exploring the social, physical, and psychological aspects of masculinity, "The Masculine Self in Late Medieval England" offers a uniquely comprehensive account of the exterior and interior lives of medieval men.
