Chaucer

Class description

Engl 515 explores some of Chaucerís best works from early in his career (The House of Fame, The Parliament of Fowls) to late (The Canterbury Tales). We will consider the issue of textual survival from a manuscript culture to a print culture, and attend to two other critical issues: Chaucerís use of sources and models (including his own work) and the recent advances of New Historicism and gender studies.
