Whether you are new to Chaucer, or are more expert, this book offers you a practical approach to him through a supportive framework of ideas upon which to base your own exploration. It begins with a careful consideration of how the narrative structure is organised - through individual narrators and the sorts of stories they relate, through several layers of narration, and through a chorus of voices that encourage intertextual and multiple readings. Then, through a detailed analysis of some of Chaucer's key themes, you are finally challenged to consider the nature of writing itself.
