Middle English: Chaucer and Romance


Description

An introduction to medieval narrative centred on the tales of Geoffrey Chaucer, the greatest English poet of the fourteenth century and one of the finest narrative poets in the language. Along with the Chaucer tales, we study a number of contemporary short romances, mostly anonymous, that display the narrative possibilities of the genre, the typical interest in adventure and passion, as well as the textual practices employed by poets in a manuscript or performance culture.
