9780719042362: Chaucer in context: Society, allegory and gender (Manchester Medieval Studies MUP)

Amongst the most written about works of English literature, Chaucer's Canterbury Tales still defy categorization, claims the author of this book. Was Chaucer a poet of profound religious piety or a sceptic who questioned all religious and moral certainties? Do his pilgrims reflect the society of the day, or were they a product of an already well-established literary tradition and convention? Surveying and assessing competing critical approaches to Chaucer's work, this text emphasizes a need to see Chaucer in historical context; the context of the social and political concerns of his own day.

Book Description Manchester University Press. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Paperback. 224 pages. Dimensions: 8.4in. x 5.4in. x 0.7in.Everyone knows of the Canterbury Tales, acknowledged as one of the leading texts of the English Canon. Consensus about them ends there. Amongst the most written about works of English literature, they still defy categorisation. Was Chaucer a poet of profound religious piety or a sceptic who questioned all religious and moral certainties Do his pilgrims reflect the actual society of his day, or were they a product of an already well-established literary tradition and convention Was he a defender of women or a misogynist, who reproduced the antifeminism characteristic of his time Did his writings present a challenge to the dominant social outlook of late Medieval England or reinforce the status quo This stimulating new book surveys and assesses these competing critical approaches to Chaucers work, emphasising the need to see Chaucer in historical context; the context of the social and political concerns of his own day. Writing as a historian, Rigby brings refreshing new insights to this contested old chestnut and Chaucer, and his Tales, are revealed to us as Chaucers contemporaries would have seen them. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Bookseller Inventory # 9780719042362
