By Doris Jedamski

Venus' Owne Clerk


By Benjamin Willem Lindeboom
  • Release Date : 04 February 2023
  • Genre: Literary Criticism

Venus' Owne Clerk: Chaucer's Debt to the “Confessio Amantis” will appeal to all those who value a bit of integration of Chaucer and Gower studies. It develops the unusual theme that theCanterbury Tales were signally influenced by John Gower's Confessio Amantis, resulting in a set-up which is entirely different from the one announced in theGeneral Prologue. Lindeboom seeks to show that this results from Gower's call, at the end of his first redaction of theConfessio, for a work similar to his – a testament of love. Much of the argument centres upon the Wife of Bath and the Pardoner, who are shown to follow Gower's lea...

At the centre of the study is a close analysis of the two narratives in Bleak House , read as a focal point for consideration of Dickens' stylistic development through his whole writing life....
