Critical Essays on Chaucer's "Troilus" and His Major Early Works Summary


Critical Essays on Chaucer's "Troilus" and His Major Early Works by Edited by C. David Benson

This collection is a companion volume to that edited by Malcolm Andrew on "The Canterbury Tales", and the selection of articles and extracts is governed by the same criteria. This collection is designed as a provision for students of medieval literature. There has been no new collection in paperback of important and representative criticism of "Troilus" and the minor poems since the early 1960s. This collection shows how Chaucer criticism has developed in this century, especially over the last 25 years, and demonstrates the range of methodologies used.
