Chaucer at Oxford and at Cambridge by J. A. W Bennett( Book )

8 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author sets out, not to prove that Chaucer was an Oxonian or a Cantabrigian, or that the characters in the university tales may be traced to historical originals, but merely to explore the correspondences between the literary cities and their citizens and the historical ones, and to illuminate some of the details of Chaucer's poetry. He reconstructs the fictional milieu of these tales using fresh archaeological evidence and newly discovered old records in Oxford and Cambridge

Selections from John Gower by John Gower( Book )

13 editions published between 1968 and 1978 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gower was the most prolific English poet of the fourteenth century and, except for Chaucer, the most versatile. The sheer bulk of his English work and the cost of the only edition available, have hitherto deterred many readers, whilst others have been misled by Chaucer's description of him as 'moral'. The stories in this volume show that, far from being a rigorous moralist, Gower is compassionate, tolerant and perceptive -- and has a distinct ironic humour. His portrait of the superannuated lover is deftly sketched; the form of the lover's confession has its own rationale; and the verse is always neat and flexible. In the light of this selection it is easy to understand why Chaucer and Gower valued each other's friendship. Besides tales from the "Confessio amantis", the volume contains part of the moving poem on Peace, three of the French balades, and passages from the longer French and Latin poems
