The Afterlives of Rape in Medieval English Literature explores these discourses of survival in a wide range of texts, including letters of spiritual advice, legal statutes and cases, saints lives, romances, theological summae, and legendary histories.

Edwards argues that understanding the literary history of survival as distinct from the history of rape highlights the ethical importance of attending to violence against women as well as the costs of reifying gender difference and its traumatic identifications - both in our study of the past and in contemporary feminist politics.
