Chaucer and the mystics : the Canterbury tales and the genre of devotional prose by Robert Boenig( Book )

7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 350 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chaucer and the Mystics is a contextualization of Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales in terms of the genre Chaucer himself valorizes in his Retraction, the prose treatise of morality and devotion. The many works of this kind have not yet been studied for their connections with Chaucer's writings - a surprising fact, given Chaucer's interest in them and the occasional inclusion of works like the Parson's Tale, the Tale of Melibee, and the Monk's Tale anonymously in flfteenth-century compendia of devotional treatises. Analogues among the five great Middle English mystics (Richard Rolle, Walter Hilton, Julian of Norwich, the author of The Cloud of Unknowing, and Margery Kempe), together with works from the body of anonymous treatises of prose devotion, are described, with attention given to Chaucer's sometimes comic, sometimes serious purposes
The Canterbury tales by Geoffrey Chaucer( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and English, Middle and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Broadview Canterbury Tales is an edition of the complete tales in a text based on the famous Ellesmere Manuscript. Here one may read a Middle English text that is closer to what Chaucer's scribe, Adam Pinkhurst, actually wrote than that in any other modern edition. Unlike most editions, which draw on a number of manuscripts to recapture Chaucer's original intention, this edition preserves the text as it was found in one influential manuscript. A sampling of facsimile pages from the original manuscript is also included, along with a selection of other works that give the reader a rich sense of the cultural, political, and literary worlds in which Chaucer lived. The second edition includes a new Middle English glossary, a timeline of Chaucer's life and times, and detailed page headers showing the fragment and line numbers to assist readers in finding a specific section of the poem." -- Publisher's description

Manuscript, narrative, lexicon : essays on literary and cultural transmission in honor of Whitney F. Bolton( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Eleven literary scholars and linguists examine the range of transmission processes important to medieval literature and to the history of the English language. Contributors investigate issues such as the editorial reshaping of manuscripts; the reformulation of textual material as it crosses genres; and the mediation of doctrine through translation. Several authors study cases of transmission and exchange significant to the development of Middle and Modern English. Each of these essays considers the convoluted nature of the transmission process in question, and reconsiders the historical framework that has informed our own reception of it."--Jacket

Dreams and Visions in Medieval Literature by Amber Rose Dunai( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This study illuminates the connection between the conventions of medieval mystical texts and the English dream vision genre. It diverges from the majority of dream vision studies by addressing the entire range of English visionary poetry, from The Dream of the Rood through the late medieval Chaucerians. The dissertation examines these pieces of literature as they relate to medieval mystical practices and writings, focusing on the ways in which biographical visionary experiences of the mystics influence literary English dream visions, while also touching on the ways in which religious literature likewise appropriates the courtly conventions of French and Middle English visionary poetry. The study of this relationship is facilitated through analysis of the role of the narrator in relation to the events of the visionary experience in both mystical and literary texts. While this role has been previously discussed in terms of activity or passivity on the part of the narrator, this study builds on this dichotomy with a model comprised of degrees and varieties of active and passive behavior, and uses this model in order to examine the relationship between autobiographical and literary visionary texts. Ultimately, this study argues that it is most productive to consider mystical texts and dream visions as members of a larger category of visionary literature, particularly as this approach encourages comparison between texts previously read apart, and may even challenge the classification of texts traditionally considered fictional. The dissertation includes a comparative reading of Julian of Norwich’s Showings and The Dream of the Rood; discussion of narratorial roles in representative mystical writings by Hadewijch of Antwerp and Mechthild von Magdeburg; discussion of narratorial roles in religious dream visions represented by Pearl and William Langland’s Piers Plowman; and discussion of narratorial roles in secular dream visions represented by Geoffrey Chaucer’s Book of the Duchess and the Robert Henryson’s Testament of Cresseid. It concludes that while the roles which narrators occupy vary among visionaries and visions in the subgenres discussed, the role of Interpreter is notably absent in many non-autobiographical texts, suggesting an increased expectation of audience participation facilitated by the transferal of the role of Interpreter from narrator to the listener/reader.
