Description - Chaucer's Cultural Geography by Kathryn L. Lynch
This compilation of new essays and essays published over the past fifty years explores Chaucer's experiences with the cultural other, especially Chaucer's relationship to Far Eastern, Islamic and African sources. The contributions consider many different Chaucerian works in the context of sexual geographies and colonizing and post-colonizing discourses. It coincides with new debate on critical methodology and new approaches to Chaucer studies which use modes of analysis normally reserved for later periods, such as Said's orientalism theories, Dollimore's 'transgressive proximity' and new French feminism.
