Course Description

Popularity of a medieval text is measured by the number of its surviving manuscripts; by this measure Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales and Dante’s Divine Comedy were medieval ‘bestsellers’. What features in these texts made them so popular? What historical evidence of their popularity do we have? This one-day course aims to study the historical relevance of both texts against the backdrop of fourteenth-century England and Italy.
