about

The medieval period is just not complete without monsters. In Of Giants: Sex, Monsters, and the Middle Ages, Jeffrey Jerome Cohen brings a critical psychoanalytic perspective to the question of identity formation -- particularly masculine identity -- in narrative representation. Cohen argues that the giant in 14th century England serves to define the boundaries of masculine embodiment. He also looks into the phenomenon of giants and giant slaying in various texts from the Anglo-Saxon period to late Middle English.
