Gender and Stereotypes: The Medieval and Renaissance Perspectives
One of the most modem theories that has developed traction over time is the idea of gender theory. Gender theory has many different branches that cover a wide variety of topics having to do with emotional and societal values. Along with these values comes an excuse to create schemas that forced women, or men, to perform actions that were appropriate for their specific gender. When approaching Chaucer's "The Wife of Bath Prologue and Tale," and Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night, or What You Will," literary analysts can agree that the sub-theory of gender identity can help to portray the gender stereotypes that were taking place during Chaucer and Shakespeare's medieval and renaissance eras, and can also show how both writers came to challenge these alleged stereotypes through their texts.
