"Tison Pugh's Queering Medieval Genres offers an exciting examination of how the discourses of same sex relations disrupt and sometimes even subvert constructions of medieval heteronormativity. Pugh follows in the footsteps of such distinguished critics as Carolyn Dinshaw, Allen Frantzen, and Karma Lochrie in arguing the necessity of engaging medieval texts with queer theory, the necessity of engaging the institution of medieval studies with queer theory. His book provides a fascinating and important queer revision of the way we read medieval culture." - Martin B. Shichtman, Eastern Michigan University
"Queering Medieval Genres offers an extraordinarily lucid introduction to queer theory, one that will be useful both to those new to this branch of cultural studies and to those in the know. The connections between queer theory and genre theory are compelling, and Tison Pugh s new readings of canonical medieval texts are insightful and provocative." - Laurie Finke, Professor of Women's and Gender Studies, Kenyon College
