    Boydell & Brewer Group Ltd 2014; US$ 34.99

    It is often said that the past is a foreign country where they do things differently, and perhaps no type of "doing" is more fascinating than sexual desires and behaviours.

Not only did it inspire quite separate works;... more...

  • Transporting Chaucerby Helen Barr

    Manchester University Press 2014; US$ 109.99

    This book draws on the work of the British sculptor Antony Gormley alongside more traditional literary scholarship to argue for new relationships between Chaucer's poetry and works by others. Chaucer's playfulness with textual history and chronology anticipates how his own work is figured in later (and earlier) texts. Conventional models of source... more...
