Product Details

Table of Contents

Introduction - romance and the Orient; Chaucer's "Man of Law's Tale", Boccaccio's "Decameron 5, 2" and Gower's "Tale of Constance" - mercantilism and faith in the eastern Mediterranean; two Oriental queens from Chaucer's "Legend of Good Women" - Cleopatra and Dido; Chaucer's "Squire's Tale" - content and structure; the Middle English romance of "Floris and Blauncheflur" - a question of incest, the double, and the theme of east and west; "Le Bone Florence of Rome" and the East.


A welcome beginning in what promises to be an extended and continuing dialogue on Chaucer's confrontation with the East... [The author] imaginatively initiates a provocative discussion that will surely continue along lines of investigation that she has identified.ARTHURIANA
