ISBN/EAN 9780230293793
Druk 2
The English language has changed dramatically over the past 500 years, making it increasingly difficult for students to read Chaucers works. Assuming no previous linguistic knowledge or familiarity with Middle English, Simon Horobin introduces students to Chaucers language and the importance of reading Chaucer in the original, rather than modern translation. Chaucers Language - leads the reader gently through basic linguistic concepts with appropriate explanation - highlights how Chaucers English differs from present-day English, and the significance of this for interpreting and understanding his work - provides close analysis and comparison with the writings of Chaucers contemporaries to show how Chaucer drew on the variety of Middle English to achieve particular poetic effects - includes sample texts, a glossary of linguistic terminology, a bibliography and suggestions for further reading to aid study. Authoritative and easy-to-follow, this is an indispensable guide to understanding, appreciating and enjoying the language of Chaucer.
