Kathryn L. Smithies explores the ways in which the donkey was regarded in medieval times- both as a working animal and a metaphor for human behaviour- and how authors of the day used the traits attributed to this humble beast- irrationality, humility, stubborness and sexual perversion - to inform and entertain their audience.
