Summary
"Chaucer's Dead Body is a fascinating examination of how the body, death, and representation come together in the recuperation and reception of Chaucer over the centuries. This provocative and challenging work is essential reading for Chaucer scholars, as well as for anyone interested in the complex relationship between the body and the literary text.
