10 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 152 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As students and scholars of Boccaccio, Chaucer, and Dante know, late medieval writers were influenced greatly by the work of peers that crossed historical, national, cultural, linguistic boundaries. Through a Classical Eye contains first-rate essays that demonstrate a range of strategies for undertaking transcultural and transhistorical studies of the late medieval period, and examines medieval literature and culture where English, Italian, and Latin materials overlap. Written in honour of the groundbreaking contributions that Winthrop Wetherbee made to this growing area of study, the volume's contributors advance his legacy and add to the burgeoning interest in setting medieval literary studies into wide intellectual and historical horizons. Divided into three illuminating sections on Medieval Latin authorship, Italy and the world, and England and beyond, and including a personal reminiscence of Wetherbee by the noted novelist Robert Morgan, Through a Classical Eye is an outstanding collection that provides key insights into medieval literature and culture

The minor Latin works by John Gower( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gower's achievement in writing substantially in all three primary languages of his time --Anglo-French, English, and Latin--was a source of pride to others and, undoubtedly, to him too: into the final years of his life he continued to produce poetry in all three languages. In Praise of Peace [is] in the same position as the shorter Latin works edited and translated in this volume: ignored, neglected, reduced, or relegated to the dusty realm of footnotes."--Publisher's website

His film and television productions have entertained and educated generations of viewers about life in the Middle Ages"--

6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who murdered Chaucer? : a medieval mystery by Terry Jones( Book )

3 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this work of historical speculation Terry Jones and a team of international scholars investigate the mystery surrounding the death of Geoffrey Chaucer over 600 years ago. An important public figure, a diplomat and the brother-in-law to John of Gaunt - one of the most powerful men in the kingdom - Chaucer was celebrated as his country's finest living poet, rhetorician and scholar: the pre-eminent intellectual superstar of his time. We have a great deal of information about his life. And yet nothing at all is known of his death." "In 1400 his name simply disappears from the record. We don't know how he died, where or when; there is no official confirmation of his death and no chronicle mentions it; no notice of his funeral or burial. He left no will and there's nothing to tell us what happened to his estate. He didn't even leave any manuscripts. How could this be?" "What if he was murdered? What if he and his writings had become politically inconvenient in the seismic social shift that occurred with the overthrow of the liberal Richard II by the reactionary, oppressive regime of Henry IV? Would the dogs of suppression, unleashed by the ruthlessly ambitious Archbishop Arundel, have been snapping at the heels of a dangerous poet?" "This hypothesis is the introduction to a reading of Chaucer's writings as evidence that might be held against him, interwoven with a portrait of one of the most turbulent periods in English history, its politics and its personalities."--Jacket
Teaching Beowulf in the twenty-first century( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays on aesthetics and medieval literature in honor of Howell Chickering( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors to this festschrift consider the relation of aesthetics to Old as well as Middle English literature, including Chaucer especially, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Gower, Lydgate, as well as medievalisms both Romantic and modern.0It requires but brief acquaintance with Howell Chickering, either through his publications or in propria persona, to delight in the extraordinary sweep of his knowledge and interests. Happily, the intent of this volume is to celebrate the fullness of Chickering’s reach. The contributors to this festschrift were asked to consider, in their own ways, aesthetics in relation to medieval literature. A bevy of contributors have responded to Chickering’s extensive scholarship on Old English as well as Middle English subjects – Chaucer especially, but also Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Gower, Lydgate; furthermore, several contributors follow his other interests from the Middle Ages to medievalisms both Romantic and modern
John Gower in England and Iberia : manuscripts, influences, reception by Ana Sáez Hidalgo( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Gower's great poem, the Confessio Amantis, was the first work of English literature translated itno any European language.
