Links are also offered to The House of Fame, The Parliament of Fowls, Lak of Stedfastness, A Treatise on the Astrolabe, and Merciles Beaute but these links don't seem to be working properly (who can say whether or whence they will be fixed?). Perhaps less relevant but also perhaps interesting are some Fifteenth-Century Continuations and Additions to The Canterbury Tales (Note: these links are also currently not working). There are also links to other Related Works (Boethius Consolatio Philosophiae in Latin [also a dead link to an English Translation] and Andreas Capellanus' 31 Precepts of Courtly Love) and Other On-Line Chaucer Sites and Chaucer-Related Web sites (These later seem only tangently related).

    As the title suggests, this is not a Chaucer site, but as it has direct links to a number of Chaucer works, I thought to include it anyway. Unfortunately, the only publicly accessibly works are Troilus and Criseyde and The Canterbury Tales which are already available elsewhere. A number of other Chaucer texts are available to "UVa users only". I don't know who that means, but if you are one of them, you can go here to find: Boece, Treatise on the Astrolabe, The Romaunt of the Rose, The Book of the Duchess, The House of Fame, Anelida and Arcite, The Parliament of Fowls, The Legend of Good Women, and Shorter Poems of Chaucer; not having access, I can't vouch for the usability of those links. There are also a number of other Middle English texts available (and some not) from this page.

    Specialized Chaucer Sites

  • Why Chaucer?
    Why Study Chaucer? A student with little background in medieval literature talked with me recently about studying Chaucer. Our conversation produced a version of this introduction to (or really, invitation to read) Chaucer.
    Susan Yager's essay discusses the world view at the time of Chaucer. Though Chaucer wrote before the reformation,during the 14th century, Europe was ruled by two popes. Though the geocentric view of the universe still held, science already attracted serious thinkers. Such contradictions helped to create great literature and Chaucer himself is a "knot of contradictions". Going back to her homepages, we find links to student projects on Nun's Priest's Tale, Wife of Bath (temporarily down for repairs), Boethian Poems, and Canterbury Tales. We also find an abundance of links to other Chaucer and Chaucer-related sites.
  • BARRON'S BOOK NOTES: Canterbury Tales
    Discusses Canterbury Tales and Geoffrey Chaucer
    This text contains information about The Author and His Times, The Pilgrims, Other Elements, The Tales, Tests and Answers, Term Paper Ideas, Glossary, The Critics, Advisory Board , and a Bibliography.
  • Chaucer Files: Pilgrimage in the Age of Schism: Chaucer, Sociological Poetics, and The Canterbury Tales.
    Standing outside the gates of Canterbury on April 19, 1391 A. D., Geoffrey Chaucer and his band of pilgrims watched helplessly as the sun sank in the west and the great gates of the medieval city closed. They were not allowed to enter because, like all travelers at the time, you had to pass between the portals of the city before the sun set. Watching the last glimmer of light leave the sky at the end of a century that had seen a hundred years of war, the terrible calamity of the Black Death, and 22 years of intractible Schism in the church, could not have been a particularly pleasant experience for any member of that ragtag band of wanderers. One could say, in fact, that such circumstances condemned the entire company to eternal death. How and why that reading of The Canterbury Tales becomes sensible depends on a close reading of the text utilizing the interpretive tools provided by Mikhail Bakhtin and his circle of literary theorists.
  • The Classic Text: Geoffrey Chaucer
    The Classic Text: Traditions and Interpretations
    This site discusses the history of the Canterbury Tales themselves. Beginning with Chaucer's original intention of each of his thirty pilgrims telling four tales, two while traveling to Canterbury and two while traveling from Canterbury, this site goes on to discuss how Chaucer's Tales quickly spread throughout England in the early fifteenth century. This site discusses various editions of the text and is illustrated with pictures from the manuscripts. These pages are part of a larger exhibit on classic texts by various authors.
  • Chaucer's Miller's Tale
    Overview of the Miller's Tale, from the Canterbury Tales of Geoffrey Chaucer.
    Elizabeth G. Melillo, Ph.D. subtitles this page Medieval ribaldry at its very best. She introduces her text with links to both The Miller's Prologue and The Miller's Tale since she does not repeat them. Melillo discusses how the medieval heart may have been more aware of God, but that neither made a man more prone to "pretty piety" nor prudery. Melillo also discusses astrology and the medieval view of it. She points out some of the irony of the tale and leaves us with links to The Reeve's Prologue and The Reeve's Tale. There are also links to individual Canterbury Tales, a Study of the Man of Law's Tale, a discussion of pilgrimage, and other Chaucer and Canterbury Tales links.
  • Miller

  • Welcome To A Chaucerian Cookery
    Geoffrey Chaucer - A Biography; Chaucer's Poetry; Food and His Poetry The Franklin and the Cook; Feasting in Chaucer's Poetry Chaucer's Foods Go We Dyne; Feeste and Cheere; A Gentil Pasture
    James L. Matterer introduces the first "book" of his work with a biography of Chaucer and then goes on to discuss Chaucer's success as a poet and how Chaucer's poetry seems to relate to Chaucer's own fortunes and downfalls. Then, interestingly, Matterer discusses how Chaucer rarely uses food in most of his work, but within The Canterbury Tales Chaucer uses the food to clue readers into different characters' personalities. Also mentioned is the identification of Rodger Hodge as the real life cook, Roger Ware. Matterer's discussion leads to his alphabetical glossary / concordance of food related terms. Matter's second book is not specifically about Chaucer but about how Chaucer and his contemporaries would have dined, both in substance and in fashion. This site also has a bibliography.

  • Chaucer and Spain
    A scholarly--from a historical and literary perspective-- website devoted to Chaucer's and his works' relationship to Spain.
    This site discusses many aspects of Spain's influence on Chaucer's life and works. Jesus L. Serrano tells you how to obtain his Spanish translation The Book of the Duchess, a book on Spanish Modesty and the Influence of Don Juan Manuel in Canterbury Tales, and a book on Seneca and the Canterbury Tales and has posted articles on Spanish References in the Canterbury Tales, Architecture in the House of Fame, Chaucer and Montserrat, The parallelism between Lady Fame and a Catalan virelay, The Chaucers in Spain, and John of Guant's intervention in Spain: Possible Repercussions for Chaucer. Not quite relevant to Spain (as far as I can see) is an interesting discussion of the character's speech-habits. Serrano includes sources for all his work. (Note: some of his links seem to be down).
  • Dave Clark -- Master's Thesis
    Reaping What Was Sown: Spenser, Chaucer, and the Plowman's Tale
    Dave Clark discusses the relationship between Chaucer and Spenser. There is a very interesting discussion of how Chaucer was understood quite differently during Spenser's time. Spenser most likely read an edition of Chaucer containing 39 stories which modern scholars have rejected from the canon, including Wycliffite's The Plowman's Tale. This expanded work, renders Chaucer polticized and proto-Protestant-reform-advocate instead of tolerant and skeptical. Thus, many Renaissance works that today may seem classical, may have seemed Chaucerian to the Elizabethans. Clark goes on to discuss how and why Spenser invokes Chaucer and the importance of The Plowman's Tale which was once thought to be Chaucer's. Strictly speaking, it seems that this site is not really much about Chaucer as an actual entity who wrote and did other things; it is about Spenser and merely touches on a Chaucer that was more a concept than a man and how the illusion of Chaucer had effects that the real Chaucer could not have.
  • /cwis01/server/hypermail/archives/acw-l/9808: Chaucer, computers, and biology (fwd)
    Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales may have influenced European literature for centuries, but scholars have been arguing for nearly as long about what Chaucer's exact words were. But now biochemists at Cambridge University are using computer programs to analyze different versions of Chaucer's bawdy tales to reconstruct the text from the original 14th century manuscript, which has not survived.
    This isn't really a site. This is a page on a hypermail archive, information dating to August 1998. The mail collected at this site seems to be quite random and little has much to do with Chaucer. Most of this thread was not particularly interesting. But this page reproduces a story from the Daily Telegraph discussing how the computer techniques of evolutionary biology are being used to reconstruct the text from the original fourteenth century manuscript, which has not survived.

    Biographies of Chaucer

  • Geoffrey Chaucer
    The famed author of The Canterbury Tales was the first to record the English London dialect, which became the basis for modern-day English. Dante Alighieri, who wrote The Divine Comedy in the Tuscan Vernacular of Italian, is also considered a pivotal contributor to what Italian language is today and had died 22 years before Chaucer.
    This rather short biography is one of the longer and more thorough ones posted, discussing Chaucer's importance, origin, capture and ransome during the Hundred Years War, marriage, career at court, death, and Canterbury Tales. Links are available to Canterbury Tales Online (most interestingly "The REBEL's Tale" found in Italy, which [?] says could be a missing entry to Chaucer's Canterbury -- but that link was down at the time of this writing), more on Geoffrey Chaucer, Discussions on Canterbury Tales, and "Other Cool Sites".

  • Chaucer Word Study Instructions
    Part of my plan for you this semester is to get you reading deeper and deeper into Middle English. In the beginning, it's almost a triumph to get the gist of Chaucer's text, but the further we go, I think it's important for you to go beyond just getting the gist and to dive deeper into a nuanced reading of these old texts. One way to do that is to get a sense for some of the subtler shades of meaning in Chaucer's vocabulary, and the way in which words which may look familiar sometimes are embedded in a radically different thought-world. You may very well want to choose a word or set of words which will feed in usefully to your main project.

    All links on this list were valid 14 May 1999.

    Why yet another list of Chaucer Sites? Well, I started off to do a webliography and got carried away sorting through the trash that I got back from different search engines.

    I don't know how many links I have left here... Copernic '99 requested 500 and only received 361, which means I have probably exhausted all links to be found on the major search engines. Probably better than half were knocked off my list for being completely irrelevant. One was taken off the list because they sold spoons to commemorate Chaucer, which I did not think was relevant enough

    Where nothing but a short link list was encountered, I went through the list and if the links were dead or already on my list (as they often were) I removed the link to that list. If there was one or two relevant links left, I moved them onto my list. If the link I received took me to the bottom of a site, I replaced it with a link to the top of a site. If I received multiple links to mirrors of the same page or information, I posted the alternative addresses in my list. If I received multiple links to different pages on the same site, in most cases I let that stand as it was.

    Some words on how I sorted the list. I endevoured to make this list as useful as possible, so I sorted the list by a number of criteria. First, what sort of information the link seemed to bring me to. For the most part, this was the easiest, although some of my divisions may seem a bit arbitrary -- if I've misplaced anything, let me know.

    Secondly, I then tried to sort each sublist as I thought might be most useful. Links to specific information was placed before links to general information. Links to Chaucer's works were ordered primarily in the same order they are given in Riverside's table of contents, complete works before fragmented ones. Links to educational guides are given in descending order by course number, on the probably erroneous assumption that courses with higher numbers will have something more to offer the advanced student.

    After that, there are two factors that play into how the links are sorted: the score the link received by Copernic '99 (whose value is dubious) and how impressed I was by the sight (also precarious). I'm open for suggests on how to reorganize these links.

    A word on the descriptions: In most cases, the descriptions were provided by Copernic '99, which in turn received descriptions from the major search engines. Where descriptions were lacking or terribly inaccurate, I cut and paste what seemed to be the most relevant information was readily available or I typed a very brief description to suplement the title. In a few cases, I retitled the link.

    I have also provided more indepth descriptions in yellow for a number of sites (at least ten).

    I don't guarantee the value of any of these links beyond saying they were operational and Chaucer oriented as of 14 May 1999. I receive no commission nor make endorsements for any products sold in the merchanice sublist.
