MUST BE INCLUDED & ADDRESSED:
This essay analyzes and compares female narrators and a combination of five female characters in The Wife’s Lement, Man of Law Tale’s and The book of Margery Kempe, and aims to demonstrate the role of female voice and how “silencing” is addressed in each text, analyzing what the text reveals regarding the masculine perspective.
The essay will also contrast the role of ‘silencing’ in Margery Kempe and how it counters the role of female voice to adapt male perspective in The Man of Law’s Tale and The Wife’s Lement. In The Book of Margery Kempe, masculine perspective in medieval culture is the dominant order. How does Margery’s resistance to medieval culture characterize her masculinity? What does Margery Kemep destabilize, how and its’ result. What is the role of feminism in The Book of Margery Kempe? Do the female narrators and characters rebel against the patriarchal order or do they accept their inferior role to men? In order to answer these questions women’s status in the medieval culture as seen through historical sources and the differences of patriarch will be looked at; their legal status, prevailing ideas of about their inherent qualities, influence of the clergy, biblical and religious views on gender and the restrictions women faced in society.
It aims to provide answers to the following fundamental questions: how are the female narrators and characters represented? Are female narrators given their own subjectivity or are they merely the voices of dominant male order? If the narrator of Wife’s Lament is silenced by her patriarchal culture, is Custance suffering also a sign of silencing? What are the writers of these two poems using silencing to say (about travel, the female characters, etc.). Why and how does “silencing” emerge in the context of medieval travel?
THE FUNDAMENTAL QUESTIONS LISTED ABOVE MUST BE ANSWERED IN BODY OF ESSAY.

Constance (Man of Law)
Sultaness (Man of Law-Sultan Mom)
Dongeoild (Man of Law – King Alla mom)
