Images of Kingship in Chaucer and His Ricardian Contemporaries

Details

The reign of Richard II saw an extraordinary flowering of literary achievement, and its major poets Chaucer, Gower, Langland and the Gawain Poet, are often discussed together as a discrete literary period. Through detailed examination of tthe texts, this study takes each poet in turn, to set out exactly what he has to say about kingship, looking for common themes and attempting to relate them to the concrete kingship of Richard II.
