Summary Centered on practices of the body-human bodies, the "body politic"--Bodies and Disciplines considers a fascinating and largely uncanonical group of texts, as well as public dramas, rituals, and spectacles, from multidisciplinary perspectives. The result is a volume that incorporates insights from history, literature, medieval studies, and critical theory, drawing from the strengths of each discipline to illuminate a relatively little-studied period
Notes Contains revised versions of papers originally presented at a conference, Intersections--Fifteenth-Century Literature and History, held at the University of Minnesota in April 1993
