Abstract:

Assuming no previous linguistic knowledge, students are introduced to
Chaucer's language and the importance of reading Chaucer in the original,
rather than modern translation. The book leads students gently through
basic linguistic concepts with appropriate explanation, highlighting how
Chaucer's language differs from present-day English and the significance of
this for interpreting his work. Close analysis and comparison with other
writers is used to show how Chaucer drew on the variety of Middle English
to achieve particular poetic effects.
