Chaucer's use of classical themes and materials in The Canterbury Tales
Vuyanovich, Lois Johnson
MetadataShow full item record
The writer has subjected Chaucer's borrowed materials to critical analysis in an attempt to show that whatever he derived from classical sources was adopted and used in accordance with a specific purpose, namely to tell a good story. Perhaps the greatest value of his study is that it brings together into on volume an up-to-date survey summary of the research and opinions of scholars into Chaucer's use of classical themes and materials in The Canterbury Tales.
