More than 900 entries, carefully selected, organized, and annotated, and accompanied by informative background material, make this volume a unique and indispensable guide to Chaucer and related studies.
The entries are divided into three categories. The first includes materials necessary for the study of Chaucer's works: complete editions, facsimiles, studies of manuscripts, canon, and dating, works on the poet's life, language, and learning, and his sources and influences. The second section covers Chaucer's works. The third contains a selection of secondary works which provide information on the age and the culture in which Chaucer lived; music, the visual arts, economics and politics, rhetoric and poetics, and sciences among the subjects included.
Most entries listed are in English, but a few essential studies in French and German are included. Items have been selected not only on the basis of quality but also for importance in the history of scholarship, variety of approach, and specific usefulness to students and beginners.
