Eve's Orphans: Mothers and Daughters in Medieval English Literature


"An important contribution to the growing research on the mother-daughter relationship. Stiller argues that although mother-daughterhood was rarely the dominant theme in medieval stories and poems, connections between women surface in ways that suggest a fantasy of feminine power which is threatening to men, of help to women, and strongly based on the mother-daughter bond." - New Directions for Women
