Contenu

Although Chaucer is often praised for his originality and inventiveness, and so considered to be a precursor of the modern author, one should not forget that he wrote at a time when Italian and French literature had a pervasive influence on all vernacular authors from the medieval West; so much so that borrowings and intertextuality need to be taken into consideration when reading the writings of Chaucer. This seminar aims to emphasize those phenomena in Chaucer's writings by reading some of his shorter poems in the light of some of the rondeaux and ballads of Guillaume de Machaut (c. 1300-1377), Eustache Deschamps (1346-1406) and Othon de Grandson (c. 1340-1397).
