Description

The papers in "Chaucer's Voices II: Truth vs. Trumpery" explore such oppositions as authenticity vs. deceit, sincerity vs. salesmanship, plain speech vs. rhetorical eloquence - oppositions that appear in ways both declamatory and subtle in Chaucer's experiments with poetic voices. Chad Crosson examines Lak of Stedfastness; Frederick Biggs considers the genuine anger in the Gower's voice; and David Coley and Gregory Roper treat voices in the Friar's Tale and Summoner's Tale.
