OBJECTIVES
The course is meant to provide a comprehensive introduction into the study of Chaucer's writings. The issues in
focus will be Chaucer's engagement with the literary tradition; narrative strategies and Chaucer's narrator persona
(s); "earnest and game" - humour, irony, parody and their uses. The course also proposes to map Chaucer's poetic
career in presenting selections of his earlier works alongside his best known piece, The Canterbury Tales, tracing
developments as well as continuities in the predominant concerns in Chaucer's texts.

MATERIAL
Primary texts:
selection of lyrics
Parliament of Fowls
The Canterbury Tales:
General Prologue
Wife of Bath's Prologue
The Merchant's Tale
The Franklin's Tale
selections from The Tale of Sir Thopas, Ther Tale of Melibee, The Nuns' Priest's Tale
Primary texts will be provided in original with glosses and in translation for convenience, but a willingness to look
beyond the translation to the original is requisite for a fair treatment and discussion of the texts.
Secondary texts:
A selection of critical reading will be posted in Moodle.
