Chaucer, ethics, and gender

Author: Alcuin Blamires
Publisher: Oxford ; New York : Oxford University Press, 2008.
Edition/Format:   Print book : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
This book, mainly concentrating on the Canterbury Tales, reassesses the moral dimension in Chaucer’s writings. For the Middle Ages, the study of human behaviour was quintessentially moral. It was not gender neutral: certain virtues and certain failings were explicitly or implicitly gender-specific. The book demonstrates how crucial Chaucer’s engagement is with the composite moral/ethical traditions available to him.
