Description

This session showcases current scholarship surrounding Chaucer’s story of Griselda in “The Clerk’s Tale.” In particular, our panel will explore feminism(s) and feminist approaches to an analysis of the many versions of the Griselda story. Of all of Chaucer's Canterbury tales, "The Clerk's Tale" has invited the most contrasting approaches and interpretations. With the wider traditions of the Griselda story in fourteenth-century France and Italy, this narrative is practically a sourcebook for different feminist theoretical and practical approaches.
