Description

In jumping into these worlds, students will become familiar with Chaucer's language and with the means of its production and tansmission, from the early manuscripts written by his scribe Adam Pinkhurst, to the editions in which students usually encounter the Tales, to the digital transcriptions and images of the new millennium.
