“Mental sharpness makes this volume a timely and refreshing addition to Chaucer studies. The ten contributors, an exceptionally talented team, write with unusual freedom and intellectual range; the result admirably exemplifies how Chaucer might be read, rediscovered, and thought about in the twenty-first century.”—David Wallace, University of Pennsylvania
“This book is an important aid to anyone studying Chaucer and looking for a guide that is both readable and aware of recent developments in the field. It deserves to be widely used in teaching at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Seth Lerer has gathered a wonderful group of scholars who write incisively and always interestingly about subjects they know in depth.”—Nicholas Watson, Harvard University
