In search of Chaucer by Bertrand Harris Bronson( Book )

30 editions published between 1950 and 2016 in English and held by 1,103 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this volume, Professor Bronson is primarily interested in the three worlds which appear in Chaucer's poetry: the dream world; the world of the mundane existence and waking observation; and the world of imagined life through reading. A study of these worlds raises questions about the kind of truth which resides in each, the literary values which can be extracted from them, their essentail relation to one another, and the perennial problem of appearance and reality.Professor Bronson is also concerned with the general critical approach to Chaucer's writings. He feels that many recent Chaucerian scholars have been misled by their application of critical disciplines nourished on the metaphysical poets to a poet who deliberately practised a style capable of being followed by a moderately attentive ear. The fact that Chaucer's poetry was composed for oral delivery has received no more than lip service from critics; yet Chaucer's relation to his audience is obviously of the greatest importance in understanding his poems. It behooves us, therefore, to clarify our thoughts as to the kind of techniques we may fittingly apply. Professor Bronson suggests that a less sophisticated way of looking at the subject might yield better results.Professor Bronson's book is a form of introduction to this new view of Chaucer; it is not a complete guide but an explanatory visit to each sphere of Chaucer's world, skilfully evocative of the people of the dream legends, the pilgrimage, the literary heroes and heroines of the Middle Ages, whom Chaucer brought into his poetry. This book is decorated with drawings in the manner of woodcuts taken from the three worlds of Chaucer's poetry. The Alexander Lectures for 1958-59

Francis James Child's English and Scottish Popular Ballads, published in 10 parts from 1882-1898, contained the texts and variants of 305 extant themes written down between the thirteenth and nineteenth centuries Unsurpassed in its presentation of texts, this exhaustive collection devoted little attention to the ballad music, a want that filled by Bertrand Harris Bronson in his four volume traditional tunes of the child ballad. The present book is an abridged, one volume edition of that work, setting forth music and text for proven examples of oral tradition, with a new comprehensive introduction.
