    Summary

    Feminist readings of Aldris are, of course, some of the most prominent. While some early voices see Aldris as simply assuming a masculine role, Carol Clover’s 1993 “Flyting as gender performance” examines Aldris’s reproach of Earl Roger and his knights...

    AU: Chaucer lives four more years and writes a tale about Grendel's mother in his Legend of Good Women. Hundreds of years later, academics are still arguing over the details, because of course they are.

    Summary

    You know what else you see on the grass in the early morning hours? You see snails. And yet there are a shocking lack of them in the marginalia of this book. You have drawn none. The scribes have drawn none. It’s truly a sin.

    [Or; Teenaged Piers and Edward basically pass notes to each other through the marginalia in Edward's book of hours.]
