Sex Matters: Margaret Tyler's Mirrour of Princely Deedes and Knighthood as a Conduct Book for Young Men

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In her dedication to Mirrour, Tyler notes that the text will "animate [and] set on fire the lustie courages of young gentlemen," while conceding that it contains "matter more manlike then becommeth my sexe." Yet, despite the supposed inappropriateness of a woman penning such a romance and presuming to offer its male readers lessons in correct behaviour, Tyler persists with her translation and defends her right to write. In so doing, Tyler confronts powerful associations of gender and genre as well as the pervasive condemnation of romance by moralists, who deemed romance to be a corrupting social force. Reversing the norm of male author providing his female readers with moral lessons, Tyler uses her translation to teach men how to behave. Through a close reading of Tyler's romance, this paper explores the consequences of Tyler's reversal of this accepted gendered instructional relationship while highlighting the specific lessons provided by Mirror.
