Donald R. Howard’s distinguished academic career began with a teaching post at Ohio State University. He was professor of English at Johns Hopkins University and also at Stanford University, where he was named Olive H. Palmer Professor of Humanities. He died in 1987.From School Library Journal:
YA Howard has assembled the schol arly research of Chaucer experts, giv ing readers, in one source, the best, or at least the consensus. He presents lit tle new in the way of research, although his book is filled with speculation and filling in between the lines. For this rea son, and for others, this book is a fine vehicle for students who wish to learn of Chaucer and his environment. How ard takes readers through Chaucer's life, telling them of the odd and the ev eryday. Students who wish to research Chaucerian ideas will be better served by going to the original sources, and to more current ones. For those who wish to get an overall impression, Howard's book is the answer, for he brings Chau cer to life, and causes readers to see the man. George F. Hawkins, Episcopal High School, Bellaire
