Chaucer on interpretation by Judith Ferster( Book )

11 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chaucer on Interpretation enters the current dialogue about whether modern literary theory can illuminate medieval works. Dr Fester argues that the insights of modern phenomenological hermeneutics can enrich our understanding of Chaucer and shows that interpretation is one of the central concerns of his poems. The book demonstrates that the hermeneutical circle is a model for the interdependent relationship between self and other, between characters, between the poet and his literary sources and between a poem and its readers. Ferster shows how Chaucer examines different aspects and consequences of the hermeneutical circle and its implications for personal identity, political power and literary meaning. Taking interpretation as a theme, she gives readings of the Knight's Tale, the Parliament of Fowls, the Clerk's Tale, the Wife of Bath and the narrative frame of the Canterbury Tales

Medieval literature and society( Recording )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On program #230. Wandering in the English countryside, a poet stops to rest, falls asleep, and dreams. His vision fills itself with fantastic images of right and wrong, reason and conscience, truth and fraud, virtue, life and death. While such dream/visions are as old as literature itself, "Piers plowman" provides modern readers with a supreme example of moral allegory that investigates individual and social behavior. Concludes with a commentary by Robert Gingher on the stone megaliths of Stonehenge
