Geoffrey Chaucer in Context

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

Abstract

Geoffrey Chaucer is widely acknowledged as the greatest English poet of the
Middle Ages. His texts are studied extensively but, in order to be fully
appreciated, they demand a nuanced understanding of the medieval period.
This volume provides freshly illuminated access to Chaucer’s writing
through an unrivalled repertoire of contextual information and perspectives
designed to enhance the independence and critical capacities of his modern
readers. The featured essays are written not only by distinguished literary
scholars but also by leading international historians. Geoffrey Chaucer in
Context is an essential reference tool for anyone studying Chaucer and will
help readers to identify his different voices and engage with the complexity
and colour of his times with new awareness.
