Overview

"The Poetry of Chaucer" is a well-arranged, well-written study, its aim being to make accessible to the general reader the fruits of all the scholarly investigations from Tyrwhitt to the present day, so far as they are helpful to a further appreciation of the poet and his work. The book is divided into chapters, which after giving some account of Chaucer's England and Chaucer himself, take up separately "Romaunt of the Rose," the Minor Poems, "Boethius" and the "Astrolabe," "Troilus and Criseyde," the "House of Fame," and "Legend of Good Women," and the "Canterbury Tales." Mr. Root in the appendix adds some brief and valuable suggestions on the study of Chaucer. The author is connected with the English Department of Princeton University.
