Marie Borroff is a literary critic, poet and philologist as well as mediaevalist, with a particular interest in the powers and effects of poetic language. In this collection of essays she explores problems of central importance in the poetry of Chaucer and his nameless contemporary, the "Gawain" - or "Pearl" - poet. The work should be useful in the study of late-Middle English literature.
