This chapter analyzes the representation of the female gaze in two medieval German texts: Winsbeckin by an anomymous author and Der Renner by Hugo von Trimberg. While the former satirically deplores the deceptiveness of women and their roaming eyes, the latter sternly admonishes girls to refrain from frivolous ogling and from superficially judging men by their looks.

Keywords:   Winsbeckin, Der Renner, Hugo von Trimberg, conduct literature, female gaze, Medieval German texts
