9780198711551: Oxford Guides to Chaucer: The Canterbury Tales

Since its first publication in 1989, Helen Cooper's guide to The Canterbury Tales has established itself as the standard work on the poem. This second edition continues to offer the most comprehensive scrutiny of the Tales both as a whole and individually. In addition, Cooper incorporates the most significant recent scholarship and criticism, reflecting current research in the areas of Chaucer's historical and social context and developments in the interpretation of Chaucer's presentation of women.

From the Back Cover:

This edition incorporates a broader representation of the most significant recent scholarship and criticism, reflecting current research into Chaucer's historical and social context and developments in the interpretation of Chaucer's presentation of women. The book is the most comprehensive single-volume guide to the Tales yet produced, bringing together a wide range of disparate material and providing a readable commentary on all aspects of the work. It combines the comprehensive coverage of a reference book with the coherence of a critical account and, since its first publication in 1989, has established itself as a standard work on the Tales.
