Summary
  • "This book makes a vigorous reassessment of the moral dimension in Chaucer's writings. Concentrating mainly on The Canterbury Tales, Alcuin Blamires discloses how Chaucer adapts the composite inherited traditions of moral literature to shape the significance and the gender implications of his narratives. Chaucer, Ethics, and Gender is therefore not a theorization of ethical reading, but a discussion of Chaucer's engagement with the literature of practical ethical advice
  • Working with the commonplace primary sources of the period, Blamires demonstrates that Stoic ideals, somewhat uncomfortably absorbed within medieval Christian moral codes, penetrate the poet's constructions of how women and men behave in matters (for instance) of friendship and anger, sexuality and chastity, protest and sufferance, generosity and greed, credulity and foresight."--Jacket
