ENGL3643 - The Canterbury Tales

Semester 2, 2014  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Assoc Prof Daniel Anlezark


Chaucer's great work draws upon a range of narrative modes: chivalry, romance, beast fable, pathos, and low comedy. 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.
