Book List

Chaucer, Geoffrey: Canterbury Tales (ed. Mann); Chaucer, Geoffrey: Troilus and Criseyde (ed. Barney)

Description

The course will read Chaucer's two greatest works--the Canterbury Tales (easily one of the most entertaining works and one of the most compelling works in English) and the Troilus and Criseyde (perhaps less entertaining, but no less compelling)--along with some small samples from the rest of his works and from his literary tradition. The readings will be in Middle English; we will take care to see that students develop the capacity to read it comfortably.

This course satisfies the pre-1800 requirement for the English major.
