Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Good women, and men interested in women in literature but not familiar with Middle English, will welcome this book. Other translations, like this one accurate and readable, are available; but the advantage of McMillan's is her introduction. She situates the poem historically, compares it to sources and analogues, explains the conventions of the catalogue tradition, and explicates the text, thus rendering Chaucer's work more accessible to general readers. Specialists will find McMillan's views both historically aware and shaped by recent feminist scholarship. An excellent bibliographical essay adds to the value of this first-rate work.
