Brides and Doom

Details

Subtitled `Gender, property and power in medieval German women's epic', this book examines the medieval German texts Nibelungenlied , Diu Klage , and Kudrun . Frakes shows that `there is a complex and pervasive texture of issues of propert, gender, class, power and political authority, all of which enable these narratives to be read not merely as highly charged political texts, but also as texts that themselves signal that complex contemporary problems may not be resolved by simple fiat '.
