Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...Craun's analysis provides a model of how reinscribing the literary within its appropriate traditions, engaging the rhetorical backgrounds that fourteenth-century poets would have expected their readers to share, helps to bring poetry to life." Kathryn L. Lynch, Speculum--A Journal of Medieval Studies
