Summary
What kinds of analysis have characterized the study of Chaucer's 'The Canterbury Tales', and what difference does it make if we admit some critical assumptions as against others? These are the underlying issues in the first part of this book. In presenting approaches ranging from traditional source-study to the application of avant-garde theory, the author keeps in mind the interests of readers who, with perhaps limited experience of the poetry, might benefit from an informative guide to Chaucer commentary. This book concludes with a discussion of Chaucer's distinctive bravado in developing situations in which satiric energies are unleashed. -- from Back Cover
