Befriending the Medieval Queer: A Pedagogy for Literature Classes.
Zeikowitz, Richard E.
College English, v65 n1 p67-80 Sep 2002
Analyzes Grendel ("Beowulf"), the Green Knight ("Sir Gawain and the Green Knight"), and the Pardoner ("The Canterbury Tales"). Notes that they are all "queer" characters in that they are not typical men of the time and they all pose a challenge or threat to normative homosocial desire. Suggests that traditional readings of these characters have obscured their disruptive queerness. (SG)
