    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 71.95

    This new addition to the Longman Critical Readers Series provides an overview of the various ways in which modern critical theory has influenced Chaucer Studies over the last fifteen years.

  • An Introduction to The Gawain-Poetby Ad Putter

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 70.95

    The late 14th century produced a crop of brilliant writers: Chaucer, Langland and Gower.

This book introduces the reader to the Gawain-poet's four surviving works: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight... more...

  • Historians on Chaucer: The 'General Prologue' to the Canterbury Talesby Stephen Rigby; Alastair Minnis

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 97.99

    As literary scholars have long insisted, an interdisciplinary approach is vital if modern readers are to make sense of works of medieval literature. In particular, rather than reading the works of medieval authors as addressing us across the centuries about some timeless or ahistorical 'human condition', critics from a wide range of theoretical... more...

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 40.00

    With his Miller's Tale Chaucer transformed a colorless Middle Dutch account into the lively, dramatic story of raunchy Nicholas, sexy Alison, foolish John and squeamish Absolon. This book focuses on the ways Chaucer made his narrative more effective through dialogue, scene division, music, visual effects and staging. The author pays special attention... more...

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Beginning with a consideration of Malory's ingenious chronology, this study shows that Malory achieved thematic and structural unity by selecting from the great mass of Arthurian legend three narrative strands -- the intrigues of Lancelot and Guinevere, the Grail quest, and the feud between the houses of Lot and Pellinore -- using these to illustrate... more...
