Description

This session investigates global perspectives by John Gower, the fourteenth-century author, and by his readers in every age. Since manuscript illustrators included the famous image of the poet shooting an arrow at the world, readers have been aware that Gower's narrators often stand at a distance from the teeming globe and in a position to launch criticisms toward it. The session surveys both historical viewpoints and contemporary theoretical readings of the globe in Gower, including ecocritical investigations of the Vox Clamantis and analyses of Gower's narratives produced in The Globe Theatre.
