About the Series

This series aims to provide a forum for critical studies of the poetry of John Gower and its influence on English and Continental literatures during the late Middle Ages and into the present day. Although its main focus is on the single poet, comparative studies which throw new light on Gower, his work and his historical and cultural context are also welcomed.
