      Abstract: THE PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESSThe New Chaucer SocietyTwenty-Second International CongressJuly 11–14, 2022Durham University, Durham, UKThe story of printing in England did not start with origin myths of Camelot or Troy, or the Bible or even the Canterbury Tales, but rather with a printed indulgence. The first dateable item printed by William Caxton at Westminster was a Latin indulgence of the second half of 1476, printed within months—possibly weeks—of Caxton's arrival in Westminster from Bruges. Only one full version of the indulgence survives.1 This was issued to Henry and Katherine Langley on December 13, 1476. Thus the 1476 indulgence precedes Caxton's printing of Chaucer's Canterbury Tales (1477) by a few months ... Read More

      Abstract: THE BIENNIAL CHAUCER LECTUREThe New Chaucer SocietyTwenty-Second International CongressJuly 11–14, 2022Durham University, Durham, UKToday I'm going to talk about Chaucer's wenches, exploring how wench names, enables, and reproduces myriad forms of intersectional disempowerment.1 Tracing its eighteen occurrences in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and following its trajectory both across and beyond the Middle Ages sheds light on its various encrusted meanings and their urgent import from Chaucer's time up through our own present moment. This is particularly pressing in the aftermath of the US Supreme Court's brutal repudiation of the constitutional right to an abortion in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson Women's Health ... Read More

           Canterbury Tales

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The word "risk" has an uncertain derivation, emerging out of the entangled tongues and economies of the medieval Mediterranean, where Christian, Jewish, and Islamic commercial interests and language-worlds intersected in maritime shipping environments. Although its earliest attestation in English is in 1621, in Chaucer's day, Genoese and Florentine (and later Venetian) bankers on Lombard Street would have likely spoken in terms of risco or rischio, words that were first recorded in the late thirteenth century and were likely in use even earlier.1 Most medieval and early modern cognates of the word have something to do with trade on the open water, such as Latin resecare ("that which cuts, such as a rock, crag ...

  • Diagnosis and Repair: Reading the Sick Body with Chaucer's Physician and
           Pardoner

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Canterbury Tales introduces the concept of sickness in its very first eighteen lines: the purpose of the pilgrims' journey to Canterbury is "the hooly blisful martir for to seke, / That hem hath holpen whan that they were seeke."1 The premise of the pilgrimage in the Canterbury Tales, then, both commemorates past cures and, perhaps, anticipates future ones. Indeed, the text is full of bodies that might be considered "seeke," a term Chaucer employs as the opposite of "hool."2 Yet Chaucer's pilgrims never reach Canterbury Cathedral, a site made famous by the twelfth-century martyrdom of Thomas Becket and subsequent miraculous cures featuring the saint's preserved blood.3 The pilgrims' nonarrival at the cathedral ...

  • Chaucer's Proleptic Palinode

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: A defining feature of Chaucer's poetry has always been its disarming of overt moralization in favor of narrative and characterological subtlety. Chaucer admits as much at the beginning of the Canterbury Tales when he advises his readers not to "maken ernest of game" (MilP, 3186).1 But while this tendency to favor the story over the moral once seemed to distinguish him from his medieval contemporaries and to affirm his "proleptic modernity,"2 it has become a renewed source of critical concern, as recent discussions about Chaucer's "moral insufficiency" and reevaluations of what a moral Chaucer might have to offer us suggest.3 Rather than directly responding to such concerns about the moral quandaries of reading ...

  • Constance and the Holy Land in the Cronicles of Nicholas Trevet

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Chaucer Studies warrants much of the credit for sparing Nicholas Trevet's vernacular world history, the Cronicles (c. 1334), from the obscurity that until recently has haunted comparable works of Anglo-Norman prose.1 Trevet was a noted figure in his own right, a Dominican scholar and educator widely known for his commentaries on Boethius and the classical world. The Cronicles represents the final work of his illustrious career, the last of three histories written at the end of his life and the only one of these not in Latin. Dedicated to the princess-nun Mary of Woodstock, the Cronicles stretches from Creation to the 1320s, covering disparate topics, from England and empire to Bible and Church.2 The chronicle has ...

           1398–1400

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: John Gower's poetic output has proven difficult for modern scholars to assess, for two interrelated reasons. First, Gower's prodigious writings are divided among the English, French, and Latin languages. In his foundational edition of Gower's complete works, G. C. Macaulay segregated the corpus by language.1 Language choice implies a finely graded sense of occasion that can be hard to grasp in retrospect, and, moreover, facility in the three languages is distributed among independent disciplines in the modern university. Only English departments have claimed Gower. The editing and elucidation of his French and Latin poetry has accordingly lagged behind that of his English, though this state of affairs is in the ...

  • Understanding Deschamps's Ballade Praising Chaucer in the Context of Early
           Humanist Epistolary Exchanges in Verse and Prose

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The French poet Eustache Deschamps is the earliest on record to have praised his English contemporary Geoffrey Chaucer for translating and writing poetry in the English language. After over a century of research on Deschamps's Ballade 285 to the refrain of "Grant translateur, noble Geffroy Chaucier,"1 there is still no scholarly consensus on when Deschamps wrote the ballade,2 who his intended audience was,3 why he wrote it, and what he meant by it.4 How to understand Ballade 285 has become ever more problematic as scholars have found irony and innuendo in new places, and have used old ambiguities to construct the proposed exchange of poetry between Deschamps and Chaucer differently with respect to key aspects, such ...

  • Thomas Hoccleve of London: New Evidence of Hoccleve's Family and Finances

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 2014, Estelle Stubbs and Linne Mooney identified the father of poet and clerk Thomas Hoccleve as William "Occlyf," citizen and draper of London, through records of London property left to his son Thomas by Maud Holbech in her will of 1392, property that Thomas surrendered in 1408 and which was sold in 1415.1 Lamentably, this source gives no indication of the relationship between the two families other than the fact that both Maud's husband, William Holbech, and Hoccleve's father, William Hoccleve, were members of the Drapers' Company, one of the most notable livery companies in London. However, further searches of archival records have provided additional evidence of a long-standing relationship between the two ... Read More

  • Richard Sotheworth, Chancery Clerks, and a Discourse of Books

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For better and for worse, Chaucer's Canterbury Tales has cast a long shadow over the study of medieval literature: especially over the manuscripts in which it survives, the individuals who read it and responded in some way, and the relationships between books and people we can tease out from the evidence. The brightness of Chaucer's name, particularly when encountered in the archival record, has thrown into shadow those names adjacent in the archive. Here I present a discovery about books and documents owned and copied by the earliest named owner of the Canterbury Tales, the Chancery clerk Richard Sotheworth. That discovery makes possible an exploration of the nature of the books and people adjacent to Sotheworth. ... Read More

      Abstract: Gillian Adler's thoughtful new book reopens the reader's eyes to the crucial role that time plays, both thematically and formally, in Chaucer's poetry. As Adler reads them, "Chaucer's poems—their aspects of both story and narrative—evoke the multiple, often contradictory forms of time, old and new, that medieval people experienced and that are key to perceiving the poet's astute sense of historical difference and novelty" (177). Time for Chaucer was more than just one of the two dimensions of sensible intuition, more than mere duration, and certainly more than sequential progression. In Chaucer's works, "time conditions all human behavior, not only because humans are contained in it, but also because they are ... Read More

      Abstract: Rape Culture and Female Resistance in Late Medieval Literature is a bit of a platypus book: it does not fit easily into established categories. It is primarily an essay collection, yet the essays are more connected to each other than in many such collections; it also contains an edition of several pastourelles, including some that have not been edited elsewhere; in addition, it fits the genre of conference proceedings, since many of the essays were originally presented at a panel at Kalamazoo International Medieval Conference. One would expect such a book, in trying to do too many different things, would do none of them well—but that is absolutely not the case here. The various parts of the book reinforce and feed ...

      Abstract: In the preface to her new book, Jessica Brantley notes a moment in her scholarly career at which she had a "galvanizing encounter with a whole book" (xii). Its focus on "whole books" is what will make Medieval English Manuscripts and Literary Forms not only a "handbook," as Brantley calls it, but also an inspiration for anyone wishing to explore the many ways in which literary form inheres in material, manuscript form. The practical "forms" of the two main sections of the book—"The Anatomy of the Medieval Manuscript" and "Case Studies"—fit with the handbook genre, but the real guidance it offers takes the form of the many productive questions it raises. More importantly, it supplies readers with models and tools ... Read More

      Abstract: This provocative book calls for a rethinking of the concepts "music" and "body." Tekla Bude argues that "music and the body are entangled practices that emerge out of social and textual environments so diverse" that "sonic bodies" (which she defines as "mutually dependent, relational, historically contingent, and co-emergent processes that rely on dialectics of materiality") exist at the extreme limits of what "music" and "body" have been understood to be (3). Six wide-ranging chapters, along with an introduction and coda, draw on an impressive array of sources, methodologies, and critical approaches, medieval and modern. This is a learned book, intensely aware of and informed by trends and conversations in ... Read More

  • Emotion and the History of Rhetoric in the Middle Ages by Rita Copeland
           (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In this rich and wide-ranging study, Rita Copeland pursues two concepts of the relationship between rhetoric and emotion from Antiquity to the end of the medieval period. The first conceives rhetoric as a set of stylistic techniques for eliciting specific emotions. The second conceives emotion as an inventional foundation for making and understanding arguments. The latter concept faded in the patristic era, argues Copeland, absorbed unnoticed into the affective community of monastic learning and eclipsed by the stylistic obsessions of the High Middle Ages. The inventional view of emotion in rhetoric would be recovered by Latin Christendom in the thirteenth century along with Aristotle's Rhetoric, a text that held ... Read More

  • The Matter of Virtue: Women's Ethical Action from Chaucer to Shakespeare
           by Holly Crocker (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Quietly polemical about the value of imaginative literature, Holly Crocker's new book, The Matter of Virtue: Women's Ethical Action from Chaucer to Shakespeare, asserts that, in a social world in which "material virtues fail to invest good women with cultural power," poetry and drama have the capacity to make such virtues and the women who exemplify them "culturally legible" (252). Crocker's study carefully parses the regulatory and antifeminist discourses that, across the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, advanced both a more stringently binary model of gender and a more intransigent assertion of masculinist privilege, and she shows how a set of exemplary imaginative narratives, in verse and drama, expose the ...

      Abstract: As Shazia Jagot has recently argued, English literary scholarship "has yet fully to embrace the possibilities that emerge from situating Arabic (and Hebrew) as language(s) of multilingual medieval Britain."1 In this book, Michelle Karnes contributes to a growing critical movement to correct this imbalance, situating philosophical and literary writings on marvels in the Latin West—including English, French, Italian, and Castilian Spanish texts—alongside Arabic traditions. Those who seek to understand the multifaceted, creative influence of Arabic authorities on the development of medieval Latin thought will not be disappointed. Karnes builds on the foundational work of scholars who have traced paths of textual ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Near the end of this masterful work of intellectual history and textual analysis, Miriamne Krummel offers a devastating quote from Robert Chazan that reflects the stakes of the book's challenging endeavor. In a 1992 article on medieval Jewish apologetics for the Harvard Theological Review, Chazan wrote: "No people can continue to function without a sense of the future" (cited by Krummel [191]). For Chazan, the people trying to write themselves into futurity in order to function were medieval Jews, the persecuted targets of Christian violence and exclusion. But, as Krummel makes clear in her new monograph, the very idea of a Jewish future (or, indeed, of a Jewishly inscribed past) was profoundly destabilizing to a ... Read More

      Abstract: Emma Lipton's erudite and timely book expands our knowledge of witnessing as a legal and literary practice that is tactically deployed in the York cycle to constitute communities, promote civic values, and resist royal authority. Lipton's study fits well with another excellent work, Jamie Taylor's Fictions of Evidence: Witnessing, Literature, and Community in the Late Middle Ages (Columbus: The Ohio State University Press, 2013); both speak to the act of witnessing as crucial to a community's understanding and valuing of itself within a larger religious and political landscape. Yet this book is not only significant to scholars working on law and medieval drama; those focusing on the medieval hermeneutics of ... Read More

      Abstract: Language learning remains core to the life of a medievalist. Many of us will have—and, indeed, still are—grappling with declensions and vocabulary, memorizing, reciting, scribbling down forms and functions, and parsing sentences of languages that are either considered to be dead as a doornail (Latin) or carry the weight of sacredness (Arabic or Hebrew). Or we have also picked up one of the many living languages, English included, required to access literature of the past and present. Being propelled to learn a language outside of one's "mother tongue"—a desire sometimes driven by necessity—sits at the heart of Karla Mallette's remarkable and capacious study, Lives of the Great Languages: Arabic and Latin in the ...

      Abstract: In this magisterial new book, Nicole Rice musters a wealth of interdisciplinary expertise in order to establish the "literary-cultural function" of the medieval hospital, a surprisingly robust and prolific engine of textual production and practice (4). Above and beyond their medical and spiritual functions, hospitals were dynamic laboratories for social and cultural work, and they emerge in this new literary history as the producers, sponsors, and archives of numerous genres. Looking at three hospitals in three major cites—St. Leonard's, York; St. Bartholomew's, London; and St. Mark's, Bristol—Rice explores the rich, interconnected histories of hospital foundation and city formation, focusing in particular on their ...

      Abstract: A probing study within the limited world of Middle English romance, Andrew Richmond's volume defends its purview by rehearsing the wide popularity of the genre in the late fourteenth century and well into the fifteenth. In addition, Richmond finds that the genre in England engages readers with settings that resemble their own local landscapes and addresses issues in the management of their own natural resources. Tying all of this to the climatic changes and instabilities of the Little Ice Age, Richmond briefly outlines the ways that crop failures, flooding, the loss of safe harbors, recurrent plagues, and a drop in population in England all fed a cultural anxiety about the natural world that was then expressed in ...

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: At the heart of this study is the durability of late medieval manuscripts in England, specifically the way manuscripts register their ability to be used and reused throughout their entire life cycles. Hannah Ryley takes an accommodating view of concepts of "use" and "reuse" in connection with manuscript books. Text-based activities such as readerly inscription and the second-hand circulation of books certainly feature, yet less familiar practices such as repair and conservation receive more sustained scrutiny. Ryley's treatment of reuse moves beyond the familiar recycling horror stories from sixteenth-century England to take in the repurposing of parchment trimmings at the production stage and the fact that ...

      Abstract: Karl Steel's How Not to Make a Human orients itself to two kinds of medieval texts: narratives from the margins, and theology from the center, and the different kinds of interpretations they make and enable. As defined by central thinkers from Antiquity through modernity—Herodotus, Aristotle, Boethius, Isidore, Albert the Great (Albertus Magnus), and Descartes—humans can be distinguished from animals and plants via the capacity of reason and the possession of a soul, both of which are seen as crucial to humanity. Centrist, dominant, Christian theology holds that humans are just below angels near the top of a great chain of being, distinct from animals (as well as from plants and stone). Alongside these statements ... Read More

  • Writing the North of England in the Middle Ages: Regionalism and
           Nationalism in Medieval English Literature by Joseph Taylor (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Northumbrian writer of Cursor mundi famously renders a text "draun" in "sotherin englis" intelligible to a northern audience: "turnd it haue I till our aun / Langage o northrin lede, / þat can non oiþer englis rede" (lines 20061–64). This moment presents the figurative boundary between north and south as simultaneously porous and unyielding, as southern texts require translation into a northern dialect. The two halves share a common Englishness, and yet there is cultural friction between regions. The articulation of these linguistic differences proves symptomatic of a broader "northern consciousness" that permeates much of medieval literature and history. Joseph Taylor's monograph Writing the North of England ... Read More

  • The Wife of Bath: A Biography by Marion Turner (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Since her "birth" in the Canterbury Tales, the Wife of Bath has had her story told, retold, dissected, reconstructed, and endlessly debated. Writer after writer has tackled the question of who Alisoun is and how she is meant to be read. Despite these centuries of work, the Wife of Bath continues to prompt new questions, conversations, and approaches to Chaucerian scholarship. Exemplifying the potential for new approaches to the Wife, Marion Turner turns to biography in The Wife of Bath: A Biography, which opens with a straightforward yet profound statement: "[t]he Wife of Bath is the first ordinary woman in English literature" (2). Turner goes on to clarify how she defines "ordinary," pointing out both what Alisoun ... Read More

  • Immaterial Texts in Late Medieval England: Making English Literary
           Manuscripts, 1400–1500 by Daniel Wakelin (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For four decades, scholarship at the intersection of manuscript studies and English literature has had much to say about trees but far less commentary about the forests where they're found. Dissatisfaction with this state of affairs has been expressed for about half this stretch of time, but until recently the case study has reigned supreme and close care has been lavished on single and singular manuscripts of English literature. But what of the vast majority of seemingly unremarkable manuscripts' If irregularity, specialness, something exuberant are the prerequisites that motivate any critical enterprise to unite bibliography and textual interpretation, then what is there to say about the overwhelming number of ...

  • Balaam's Ass: Vernacular Theology before the English Reformation. Volume
           I: Frameworks, Arguments, English to 1250 by Nicholas Watson (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Over the past thirty years, the study of vernacular theology has transformed the way scholars talk about lay cultural and religious life during the Middle Ages. With the publication of Volume 1 of Balaam's Ass (named for the divinely inspired donkey who rebuked the gentile prophet Balaam), Nicholas Watson lays the groundwork for a new literary history of medieval England that places vernacular religious writing at the center, not the periphery, of medieval religious and cultural life.Watson's main innovation in this book is his claim that medieval religious vernacular writing in England consisted of a unified corpus, including works in both French and English, that begins with the Old English translations of the ...

  • "Piers Plowman" and Its Manuscript Tradition by Sarah Wood (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Wood's intricately argued volume draws upon the three vast categories of scribal evidence for the medieval reception of Piers Plowman: (1) textual variants, (2) marginal annotations and rubrics, and (3) early compilations into which the poem was copied. Via this holistic (and perhaps idealistic) approach, Wood attempts to offer Langlandians a bird's-eye view of these three amorphous bodies of evidence—oceans in which it has often felt like we are drowning—usually walled off from each other. By now, Piers textual issues have become so complicated that they are mostly left to editors and editorial theorists—in fact, there are distinguished Middle English scholars who have sworn off further work on Langland to avoid ...

  • Translating Christ in the Middle Ages: Gender, Authorship, and the
           Visionary Text by Barbara Zimbalist (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In Translating Christ in the Middle Ages: Gender,
      Authors hip, and the Visionary Text, Barbara Zimbalist argues that representations of Christ's speech are consistently prominent features of works either by or about female visionaries, despite the wide variety of genres or languages in which that speech is recounted. The complex relationship among author, authority, and authorization characteristic of mystical writings such as these was the focus of Sarah Beckwith's major 1992 essay "Problems of Authority in Late Medieval English Mysticism."1 But the ways in which the female visionary intimately engaged in the conversations with Christ that then formed the ground of her own authority as a leader in her community ...
