Editorial Reviews


Provide(s) modern readers with the contextual information needed for an understanding of the Canterbury Tales... a detailed discussion of the meaning and significance of the terms used to describe the clothing of Chaucer's secular pilgrims. ENGLISH HISTORICAL REVIEW Good to encounter a book that explores the subject widely and in detail... as a quarry of evidence, it is certainly rich and rewarding. HISTORY Synthesizes a wealth of material on dress... Evidence is presented from legal, funerary artistic and other literary sources; the main focus is on costume history and social practice... Scholars from many disciplines will welcome the suggestiveness and range of this substantial study. TEXTILE HISTORY This informative book is likely to prove indispensable for Chaucerians and other scholars with an interest in medieval characterisation and clothing. ARTHURIANA

"Ten Windows" by Jane Hirshfield
Hirshfield explores how poetry’s world-making takes place: word by charged word. By expanding what is imaginable and sayable, Hirshfield proposes, poems expand what is possible. See more
