From the Inside Flap
Reeser proposes a definition of gender in which moderation and masculinity are inextricably linked. The book begins with a reading of this brand of masculinity in Aristotle and then proceeds to textual analyses of canonical and non-canonical writers of the Renaissance, such as Rabelais, Montaigne, Erasmus, L„ry, and Artus.
