Understanding the Manuscript Frontispiece to Corpus Christi College Cambridge Ms 61. The Political Language of a Lancastrian Portrait
2010 0-7734-4691-5
This study utilizes a two-pronged approach to examine the rationale underlying the iconography of the frontispiece to Chaucer’s Troilus and Criseyde in Corpus Christi College Cambridge Manuscript 61. It considers Chaucer in light of orality/literacy theory as well as in relation to prelection and interprets the work within a political framework. This book contains one color photograph.
