Rate this:
Offered as part of the sexcentenary commemoration of Chaucer's death, this very readable study examines Chaucer's impact on the academic and non-academic worlds of the 19th and 20th centuries. Chronological chapters assess Chaucer's impact on the Pre-Raphaelites, on W B Yeats, on Edwardian children's stories and on post-World War One authors. Ellis also considers modern translations and contrasts the relationship between academia's interest in Chaucer and his representation in the media and in historical fiction since the Second World War.
