This book explores Chaucer's representation of shame and guilt in the context of modern affect theory. By showing how shame pervades Chaucer's texts but guilt is largely invisible, inaccessible, or resistant to full disclosure, McTaggart challenges perceptions, positions the work in relation to late medieval debates about confession, and shows how the ethics of affect lie at the heart of Chaucerian poetics.
