Book Description

Originally published in 1964. This book deals wholly with Chaucer’s comic tales. The individual tales are not discussed in isolation but always with reference to the others and to Chaucer’s poetry as a whole. By this comparison and analysis, this book illuminates the features of Chaucer’s many-sided art.
