Reviews

"By applying the theories of postcolonial criticism, de Weever attempts to make clear the racist and imperialist biases of medieval epic poets. In so doing she both puts in relief the culturally loaded treatment of the Saracen princess in the works studied and raises important questions about the danger of projecting modern cultural concepts onto an ancient poetic form." -- Speculum-A Journal of Medieval Studies
