About This Book

The essays in this volume pay tribute to the distinguished career of Professor R.F. Yeager. Appropriately for one who has done so much to advance scholarship and critical debate on this poet, they focus on John Gower. The approaches taken range widely, from poetics to palaeography, from close critical interpretation to ecocriticism, offering important new readings of Gower and his age. Particular topics addressed include Gower's revisions to the Tale of Rosiphilee; theological and philosophical positions within Gower's work; the violence of manuscript images of Confessio Amantis; and the views of a fellow poet on Gower - Edward Thomas. SUSANNAH MARY CHEWNING is Senior Professor of English, Union County College. Contributors: Stephanie Batkie, Susannah Mary Chewning, Martha Driver, A.S.G. Edwards, Andrew Galloway, Brian Gastle, Richard Firth Green, Natalie Grinnell, Matthew Irvin, Michael Kuczynski, Roger Ladd, Peter Nicholson, Derek Pearsall, Russell A. Peck, David Roberts, William Rogers
