Description - Chaucer and the Making of English Poetry, Volume 1: Love Vision and Debate by P. M. Kean

Originally published in 1972. This important work of Chaucerian scholarship deals with two aspects of the poet and his work - his individual achievement and his place in history - and demonstrates that in both these senses Chaucer is a maker of English poetry.

The author assesses the extent of Chaucer's debt to the English tradition. She considers the development of his 'urbane' manner as a new poetic technique and, with reference to such poems as the Parlement of Foules and the House of Fame, discusses new themes in the Love Vision. She concludes with a detailed study of Chaucer's great debate on love Troilus and Criseyde.
