About this book

Through extended readings of English, French, and Italian writers of the Thirteenth and Fourteenth centuries, Claustrophilia shows that medieval enclosures actually make room for desires and communities that a poetics of pure openness would exclude.

Reviews

'...this is an engaging, provocative work, in which some dazzling and eclectic readings come together in a riot of queer bodies, spaces and associations, exploring the medieval canon from a fascinating angle and inviting academics to reflect on their own place and attachments.' - Miranda Griffin, French Studies

' ...radient, entrancing... a scholary review.' Chicago Journals
