Chaucer Exhumed and Explained July 28 2007
By Christine Hamm - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Dinshaw's book is mandatory reading for anyone interested in the new critiques of Medieval writers. Her ideas are clearly elucidated and thought out. She explores the most important of Chaucer's works from a feminist position that takes the whole of the middle ages into consideration. Her elucidation of "Adam, The Scribe" was especially helpful.

Important work for medieval scholarship July 5 2014
By Anne Babson - Published on
Format: Paperback
This text may be out of fashion right now, but its importance to late medieval scholarship will endure. She's a post-modernist and believes that "reading like a woman" is not an essentialist expression. Given the establishmentarian patriarchal environment in which she was reading medieval literature, how could she not see gender as a material issue in textual analysis and the issue of authorship in Chaucer's work?

She writes fluently and passionately. Read this, and even if you reject her approach, you will learn something.
