- "This book analyzes the interaction between gender and species in Chaucer's poetry and strives to understand his adaptation of medieval discourse through an ecofeminist lens. Works that either speak of animals, or more pertinently those with animals speaking, offer fruitful results in the attempt to understand the medieval textual handling of the 'others' of society"--Provided by publisher.
