About this product
- DescriptionChaucer and the French Tradition, first published in 1957, is table among modern studies of Chaucer for its attention to the importance of style. The author offers first an analysis of the two dominant traditions of style in the French literature on which Chaucer's poetry is based: the courtly, and the bourgeois or realistic. He then studies the stylistic character of the three important tarly poems, arguing that Chaucer's development was t a revolt from convention to realism, but rather a progressive mastery of borh methods simultanrously. Through his style, Chaucer is thus seen to be confronting the central problem of late medieval culture: the combination of the mundane and the transcendental, the realistic and the idealistic, the natural and the supernatural. Chaucer's solution is found in the ironic balance of Troilus and Criseyde and in the mixed style of the Canterbury Tales.
