Ellesmere Chaucer: Essays in Interpretation

Ellesmere Chaucer: Essays in Interpretation

by Anthony G. Cains, M. B. Parkes, Betsy Bowden, Richard K. Emmerson

Editorial Reviews

The Ellesmere manuscript of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, created not long after his death in 1400, is the most famous English literary manuscript to survive from the Middle Ages. It was acquired by H.E. Huntington in 1917 when he bought the Bridgewater Library. The present volume is both the companion to The New Ellesmere Chaucer Facsimile (1995), and an independent compilation of essays by leading Chaucer scholars and medievalists concerning the manuscript. Includes some 60 b&w illustrations and an eight-page color foldout from the Facsimile. An exceptionally handsome volume. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
