Gower was the most prolific English poet of the fourteenth century and, except for Chaucer, the most versatile. The sheer bulk of his English work and the cost of the only edition available, have hitherto deterred many readers, whilst others have been misled by Chaucer's description of him as 'moral'. The stories in this volume show that, far from being a rigorous moralist, Gower is compassionate, tolerant and perceptive -- and has a distinct ironic humour. His portrait of the superannuated lover is deftly sketched; the form of the lover's confession has its own rationale; and the verse is always neat and flexible. In the light of this selection it is easy to understand why Chaucer and Gower valued each other's friendship. Besides tales from the "Confessio amantis", the volume contains part of the moving poem on Peace, three of the French balades, and passages from the longer French and Latin poems

Chaucer at Oxford and at Cambridge by J. A. W Bennett( Book )

5 editions published in 1974 in English and Undetermined and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author sets out, not to prove that Chaucer was an Oxonian or a Cantabrigian, or that the characters in the university tales may be traced to historical originals, but merely to explore the correspondences between the literary cities and their citizens and the historical ones, and to illuminate some of the details of Chaucer's poetry. He reconstructs the fictional milieu of these tales using fresh archaeological evidence and newly discovered old records in Oxford and Cambridge

Report on Experience, published posthumously in 1947, is one of the most clear-sighted and moving memoirs to merge from the Second World War. From reflections on the New Zealand of his youth, John Mulgan moves on to his experiences of the European war and the British army. Barracks life, the battles of El Alamein, and above all his months fighting with partisans in Axis-occupied Greece, are brought to life in this engaging account."--Back cover
