Summary
"This is the most comprehensive guide to Chaucer's work and the history of its reception available, combining general essays offering background and contextual information with detailed readings of specific Chaucerian texts, readings informed by a variety of modern theoretical approaches which have become increasingly prominent in Chaucer studies in recent years. The Oxford Guide thus provides information and up-to-date orientation on a hitherto unequalled scale, with 37 essays from an international team of expert scholars."--BOOK JACKET
