LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:
Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 2003. 246pp looks unused . The medieval landscape, as traditionally viewed through the eyes of scholars, was hardly populated by women - aside from the occasional dazzling queen or mistress, strong-willed abbess, or exotic mystic. This picture has been dramatically altered by the scholarship of the last few decades as women have been restored to the medieval scene. However, to date, young unmarried women or 'maidens' have attracted little academic attention. The life-phase of 'adolescence' was rather different for maidens than for young men, and, as such, merits study in its own right. At the same time a study of young womanhood provides insights into ideals of feminine gender roles and identities at different social levels. Young women were engaged in the process of acquiring the gendered selves required of adult women, but were themselves representative of a powerful ideal of femininity.. Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
