Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the House of Fame, which may be considered to be the earliest and best example in English of a poem that went from the hand of the author directly into the hands of critics, almost completely bypassing its audience. It also serves as yet another attempt to find the unity in the House of Fame, but differs from certain theories by remaining within the lines of Chaucer's poetry.
