Description - The Art of Chaucer's Verse by Alan T. Gaylord
These fifteen essays, four of them commissioned for this volume, along with a discursive introduction which sets each essay in place, represent a gathering of Chaucerian scholarship never before attempted. This volume forms a symposium on Chaucer's craft that concentrates on his poetic forms, rhythms, rhyming, versification and prosody. The Art of Chaucer's Verse will be of use to the advanced student of Chaucer and medieval poetry, and to the teacher interested in identifying, explaining and bringing to life the patterns of sound and sense in Chaucer's verse. The extensive master bibliogrpahy comprises a library of references which will have been reviewed and discussed in the essays.
