A quick article bleg

Thanks for the encouragement, guys! I'm feeling tons better now that I've recovered a bit!

Quick question - can anyone tell me the title/author of that article about mothers using medieval romances to teach their daughters? I know there is one (it seems like it was in an essay collection) and I can't remember or find it for the life of me!

Ohhh, that article sounds interesting. When you remember the name can you post it here so I can file it away?

Goodman, Jennifer R. "'That Wommen Holde in Ful Greet Reverence': Mothers and Daughters Reading Chivalric Romances" in Women, the Book and the Worldly, ed. Lesley Smith. Cambridge: Brewer, 1995.

Argh - YES! Thank you Prof. dB! That is exactly what it is - I even own this book, but for the life of me I couldn't remember where the article was...

It was the least I could do. I have two kids myself, and I well remember the haze of the first three months. I can't imagine it with twins. Frankly, I'm amazed you can remember how to read at all. :)
