‘The eight essays in this volume reinvigorate the study of Chaucer’s reception and representation of Italian culture by reconceptualising the ways in which we might approach his work. Chaucer’s relation to Petrarch gains depth and nuance … and his acquaintance with developments in Italian painting casts new light on both his political engagements and his interaction with Boccaccio’s works … Chaucer and Italian Culture is a book anyone interested in cross-cultural translation will want to read.’
-Professor Warren Ginsberg, University of Oregon

‘Addressing important topics such as diplomacy, topography, vision, painting and language, Chaucer and Italian Culture also offers unusual and illuminating approaches to subjects such as the poetics of haunting, prophecy and civic ritual. With essays by established scholars alongside contributions from a new generation of medievalists, the collection is a timely addition to research on Chaucer’s European identity.’
-Emeritus Professor Nick Havely, University of York
