Leserkritik

“Finn’s excellent study is one of the first of its kind to engage with early chronicle sources’ complex depictions of historical royal women. Her lucid explanation of the influence of generic traditions of romance narratives and de casibus tragedy on historiography is a crucial piece of the puzzle that is the historical and literary representation of queenship, and her introduction of so many varied texts invites further investigation of this rich area of study.” (Allison Machlis Meyer, English Studies, Vol. 97 (4), 2016)

"This book makes a significant contribution to the debate about defining female identity and will be of interest to, among others, scholars in English literature, drama, history, and gender studies. Utilizing a wide range of documents, Mudan Finn examines representations of the last Plantagenet consorts as a way of revealing authorial anxieties and fears concerning these women's exercise of power." - Renaissance Quarterly

"The Last Plantagenet Consorts combines exhaustive research with a subtle and complex argument about historiography, female agency, and the power of narrative - topics that remain provocative and timely." - Journal of British Studies
