The Literature of Misogyny in Medieval Spain examines the medical underpinnings of two major misogynist works from fifteenth-century Iberia: Alonso de Martínez's Arcipreste de Talavera and Jacme Roig's Spill. Michael Solomon argues that these works gain their persuasive force by linking concerns over health and illness with men's behaviour towards women. Solomon shows how the demonization of women in medieval society was more than a cultural phenomenon; it was a legitimate aspect of the healing arts, considered vital to the well-being of men.

Review of the hardback: 'Drawing on a wide variety of sources, this well-researched book deals primarily with two mediaeval works, Alonso de Martinez's Arcipreste de Talavera and Jaime Roig's Spell, and the link between their misogynist content and mediaeval medicine. Although of particular interest for the specialist in mediaeval Spanish literature, as all Spanish quotations are translated into English and its style is lucid, this book could have a wider general appeal with its fascinating insight into the influence of mediaeval medical theory and practice on the writing of this time.'
