Chaucer's Chain of Love

Portada
Fairleigh Dickinson Univ Press, 1996 - 215 pàgines
This book traces the thematic and structural implication for Chaucer's poetry of the chain of love between God and his creation, an image used by the Platonist philosophers of Chaucer's day, as well as by the church as a metaphor for God's providential love. As a structural principle, the chain of love is the intermediary between constituents of time, space, and words.
