Thematic Custom Text Starter List: Medieval Women Writers

Created for the convenience of instructors assembling custom texts, the following is an incomplete list of materials in The Broadview Anthology of British Literature that may lend themselves well to courses focused on medieval women and/or medieval women writers. Many other works in the anthology may of course be taught with such a focus.

While this list is drawn from The Broadview Anthology of British Literature, instructors assembling custom texts are invited to incorporate materials from almost any of our anthologiesWith the exception of readings that are in-copyright to a rights holder other than Broadview Press, the majority of material published by Broadview is available for inclusion. More than 400 stand-alone works are also available to be packaged with or reprinted in custom texts, from The Works of Gwerful Mechain to The Lais of Marie de France.

If you are having difficulty finding the texts you need or would like help assembling your custom text, please contact custom@broadviewpress.com.
