Contenu

If Troilus and Criseyde and The Canterbury Tales are often considered Chaucer's masterpieces, the four dream poems which, for most of them, were written earlier in his career, are nevertheless marked by often unsurpassed delicacy and elegance in English literature. They also explore subjects with which we can still engage today, such as love and transience, the role of literature, man and his role within society, social order, etc. We shall devote our attention to two of Chaucer's dream poems, The Book of the Duchess and The Parliament of Fowls.
