DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Building upon Karma Lochrie's assertion that the "normative principal" of heterosexuality is a peculiarity of the modem age and Foucault's assertions about the problems of defining "regular sexuality" (p. xvii), Schultz proceeds to question both sexual categories themselves, and the ways in which they are formed. Schultz's observations about the purpose of courtly love and the ways in which it both creates and subverts social paradigms make this work accessible and interesting to scholars whose area of interest lies outside Germanic vernacular literature.
