Performing Chivalric Masculinity: Morality, Restraint, and Emotional Norms in the Libro del Cavallero Zifar
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of History.ORCID iD: 0000-0002-7828-8003
2018 (English)In: Affective and Emotional Economies in Medieval and Early Modern Europe / [ed] Andreea Marculescu and Charles-Louis Morand Métivier, New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2018, 1, 227-246 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Bergqvist offers an analysis of how emotional and affective behavior are portrayed in relation to masculinity in the Libro del Cavallero Zifar, the first domestic book of chivalry composed in medieval Castile around the year 1300. This literary work embodies knightly manhood and the performative aspect of lay elite masculinity. Bergqvist finds that the male ideal of the Zifar, epitomized in its eponymous hero, is characterized by emotional restraint and composure. This ideal of moderation, shared with contemporaneous wisdom literature, grounds Castilian chivalry in morality, and creates a distance from the emotionally expressive Arthurian knights of French romances. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the incentive for promoting this ideal and the influence on the narrative of Toledo as the place of composition.
