An Anniversary Collection volume

"In her fluency in the language of feminism, psychoanalysis, and deconstruction, Gayle Margherita is one of the most articulate and persuasive readers of Middle English poetry I have encountered in a good while; in its demonstration of the value and validity of these languages in analyzing and understanding Middle English poetry, The Romance of Origins is one of the most exciting and important books to appear in our field in years."—R.A. Shoaf
