First published in 1998. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.
BooknewsBegins a series collecting essays on Chaucer written mainly after 1950 augmented with some commissioned pieces to round out particular thematic volumes. The initial dozen focus on the fundamental ways in which scribes, commentators, poets, and editors shaped and defined Chaucer's canon and reputation in the first century after his death. The one commissioned article examines questions of evidence. Others consider scribes as early critics, a language policy for Lancastrian England, what Lydgate and Henryson did to , and other topics. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
