This book offers a compelling portrayal of two contrasting figures who bring couples together for romantic love or sex: elegant aristocrats who serve idealized consensual lovers, and ancient crones who capture women for a price. Via a sweeping tour of fourty-five medieval works from three centuries, Mieszkowski reveals a previously unsuspected dimension of Chaucer's Troilus and Criseyde.
