Abstract
  • This work traces the development of a new, female-friendly courtly model in Hartmann von Aue’s Erec through a close examination of the development of female subjectivity. I argue that female subjectivity is affirmatively realized in Erec through a succession of private and semi-private spaces, whose physical and/or metaphorical placement outside the purview of theretofore understood methods of gauging the acceptability of feminine behavior, promotes a simultaneously separate and equal role for courtly ruling women.
