"This book is a magisterial synthesis and a major step forward for work on lyric poetry in Iberia and across medieval Europe...A wonderfully fresh and bracing contribution to medieval studies."-George D. Greenia, College of William and Mary, editor of La coronica
"Performing Women provides a bold, new contribution to our appreciation of Medieval Spanish lyric poetry. Drawing on models of gender and performance theory, Denise Filios explores a wide variety of ways in which women are figured in comic-obscene and comic-erotic texts. This is an important study that both illuminates individual texts and reconstructs for the modern reader a wealth of cultural contexts that are essential to our understanding of this influential poetic form." - Marina Brownlee, Princeton University
"I will certainly place the book on my department's graduate reading list and suggest that students read it with close attention. All in all it is a strong, ambitious first book that opens up new approaches to understanding the way the medieval lyric functioned and was constructed in society." - E. Michael Gerli, University of Virginia
