Chaucer: Complaint and Narrative
Boydell & Brewer Ltd, 1988 - 232 pàgines
Counters the view of Chaucer's complaints as exercises in a worn-out French tradition by demonstrating how his effort to fuse lyric and narrative modes led him to experiment with complaint. `His analyses give new perspectives on several of Chaucer's works -- an intelligent, original and profitable view.'STUDIES IN THE AGE OF CHAUCER
