The third edition of the definitive collection of Chaucer's
Complete Works, reissued with a new foreword by Christopher Cannon.
Since F. N. Robinson's second edition of the The Works of Geoffrey
Chaucer was published in 1957, there has been a dramatic increase
in Chaucer scholarship. This has not only enriched our
understanding of Chaucer's art, but has also enabled scholars,
working for the first time with all the source-material, to
recreate Chaucer's authentic texts. For the third edition, an
international team of experts completely re-edited all the works,
added glosses to appear on the page with the text, and greatly
expanded the introductory material, explanatory notes, textual
notes, bibliography, and glossary. In short, the Riverside Chaucer
is the fruit of many years' study - the most authentic and exciting
edition available of Chaucer's Complete Works.
