Show Summary Details


This book is concerned with the contexts of Chaucer's Italian sources and how those sources were produced throughout the fourteenth century in ways that offered rich modes of reading material textuality. While dealing with sources in the tradition sense, it has sought to extend the parameters of what constitutes a source to the whole page: margin, gloss, script, support, size and the many other features of a book that exert hermeneutic force on the reader.

Keywords: textuality; commentary; Chaucer; Boccaccio; Italian traditions

Chapter.  671 words.
