    Reviews & endorsements

    'The Anglo-Italian editorial team is to be congratulated for giving new focus to what has become a classic guide to England's greatest mediaeval poet.' Contemporary Review

    'The Cambridge Companion to Chaucer is appealing to both scholars and students who are already familiar with Chaucer but wish to achieve a greater understanding of this major medieval poet. The various voiced herein further dialogue with him, contribute significantly to the field of Chaucer studies, contextualize Chaucer's major works, and underscore the classical reputation of the Cambridge series.' Sixteenth Century Journal

    'The first edition, sound, intelligent, and rich as it is, has been an important resource and orientation point both for students and for scholars for almost two decades … the editors' decision to eschew an essay formula has born fruit in liveliness and originality as well as intellectual richness.' English Studies
