This concise companion provides a succinct introduction to Chaucer’s major works, the contexts in which he wrote, and to medieval thought more generally.
  • Opens with a general introductory section discussing London life and politics, books and authority, manuscripts and readers.
  • Subsequent sections focus on Chaucer’s major works – the dream visions, Troilus and Criseyde and The Canterbury Tales.
  • Essays highlight the key religious, political and intellectual contexts for each major work.
  • Also covers important general topics, including: medieval literary genres; dream theory; the Church; gender and sexuality; and reading Chaucer aloud.
  • Designed so that each contextual essay can be read alongside one of Chaucer’s major works.
