Overview

In this fresh edition of his tried-and-tested guide, Rob Pope continues to help students get to grips with Chaucer—all the way from the first tentative encounters with the language to sophisticated critical and historical engagement with Chaucer's narrative art in context. All the commonly studied tales are featured, and each is approached through a series of clear and well-defined steps. In addition to guidance on 'translating' and interpreting Chaucer, there are new sections reviewing key terms and arguments in contemporary critical debates. This is a practical, authoritative, and enjoyable handbook that brings the study of Chaucer up-to-date.
