Each generation finds in Chaucer's works the concerns and themes of its own era. But what of Chaucer's contemporaries? For whom was he writing? How did he and his audience understand their society, and how is that view reflected in his poetry? These are some of the questions that Paul Strohm addresses in this examination of the historical Chaucer. His analysis yields a fuller understanding of Chaucer's world and provides insights into the social implications of literary styles and forms.

Review:

An ambitious book and one that stands at the very center of contemporary Chaucer criticism--and is central to the current demand for a new kind of historicism. It is extremely knowledgeable on the social and historical background and at the same time sensitive in an unusual way to the poetry; and it contains some of the best writing on Chaucer's life I have read.--Derek Pearsall, Harvard University
