The twofold aim of this volume, in the words of its author, is "to reassess the work of our greatest medieval author and to resurvey the fifteenth century in the light of modern scholarship." Mr. Bennett penetrates the mass of erudition which theatens - ironically - to bury the most humane of poets, Geoffrey Chaucer. He makes a study of the age of Chaucer, the events which shaped his career, and the precise poetic means Chaucer used to produce his unique effects. Includes an Index.

(Key Words: Geoffrey Chaucer, H. S. Bennett, English Literature, Literary Criticism, Fifteenth Century, John Wyclif, William Shakespeare, Reginald Pecock, William Langland, Thomas Hoccleve, William Caxton, Edward III, Carleton Brown, Boccaccio).
